Blount House, 1880, The Ridge

This home has been expanded over time but is typical of the Georgian Cottage style so popular in Darien in the late 19th century. It is known as the Blount House and the old Methodist parsonage for a minister active in Darien over a century ago. I believe nearby Blount’s Crossing is named for him.

DeLorme House, 1894, The Ridge

Thanks to Melissa Pope-Scott & Bryce Baumgartner for sharing a bit of their home’s history. Melissa writes:  This home was built originally by a Mr. De Lorme, early Darien attorney. He built it for his daughter who lived in the home for many decades with her life partner, Annie. Miss De Lorme was a pharmacist and owned Dariens first drug store. Annie was a school teacher for the Methodist church school at The Ridge. They are buried together in the De Lorme family plot at St. Andrews Cemetery at Ashantilly. The McQuaig family owned it much later on.

Patterson-White House, Circa 1872, The Ridge

Thanks to Bill Bolin for the identification. The house was built by Captain William Henry Patterson and later owned by the Thompsons, who sold it to the Daniel H. White family in the 1950s.
