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.
