Jack Nelson Ford, Darien


This has been remodeled and now serves as the Darien firehouse. Its Streamline Moderne architecture suggests it was likely built from the mid-1940s to the mid-1950s. The ‘modern” tabby walls have been replaced by stucco. In transferring materials from one website to another, I have lost the comments, but someone noted that the dealership had another owner besides Jack Nelson. I’ll add that information, as well as photo of its present appearance, as soon as possible. (These photographs were made in 2011).

    Love that art deco look.

  2. Unfortunately, unaware of the architectural value and beauty of the building, someone in a position of authority decided to “remodel” the building and chose to stucco over all of the beautiful old Art Deco glass blocks.
