Patelidas Bungalow #1, 1940, Darien

This is one of three nearly identical Crafstman-inspired gable-front bungalows built by Gen or Stelio Patelidas as rental properties in 1940 [to my understanding]. I believe at least one  is presently being restored.

Fire House, 1884, & Masonic Lodge, 1895, Darien

Best known as City Hall today, this was originally built as a single-story engine house for the Board of Fire Commissioners in 1884. A second floor was added in 1895 for use by the McIntosh Dragoons and the Masons. Remodeled as a service center by Mrs. Talbot Smith in 1944, it was home to the USO during World War II. Since then it has been used by the police and fire departments and the second floor was used as the public library until the construction of a more modern facility on U. S. 17.

Emanuel Brown House, Circa 1875, Darien

This landmark Darien home, built by Emanuel Brown and later owned by the Johnson family, recently served as the Darien River House Restaurant. Different sources give dates of construction varying from 1875-1920. Until I learn otherwise, I’m deferring to the date given in Georgia’s Natural, Archaeological, and Historic Resources Survey.
