Kenan-Fox House, Circa 1865, Darien

The date given for this house would make it one of Darien’s oldest. I have encountered the date on several resource surveys, so I’m assuming it has been validated. It was likely built as a smaller house that has been expanded over the years.

James Walker House, 1890, Darien

This Folk Victorian was built for James Walker, who I understand at the time was chairman of the McIntosh County Commission. The architect/builder is identified as James Gone. Other owners have been the Fox, Valenti, Fishburn, and Bramlett families.

Eclectic Craftsman Bungalow, Circa 1915, Darien

Though it has been modified, this one-and-a-half story cottage originated as a Craftsman. Some elements of its original appearance have survived.

Tidewater Commissioner’s Office, Circa 1875, Darien

This was originally a small office building. It was later expanded and has been a residence for many years. I believe Raymond Clancy, whose Georgian Cottage still stands across the street, was the Tidewater commissioner in question. I’m still trying to track down a history of the Tidewater Commission.

Gale House, 1875, Darien

The Gale House is one of the oldest remaining examples of the Georgian cottages so common  in post-Civil War Darien. Few of these survive in original condition today; this is considered one of the least altered of the extant examples.
