In our quest to preserve Darrtown history, the best that we can do is gather the physical artifacts (newspaper accounts, diaries, journals photographs, etc.) along with oral stories – told from one generation to the next. This history section of the provides an unofficial, well-intentioned, collection of such information.

Some items in this website conflict with others; such is the lot of those who attempt to capture history. We gather as many pieces of the puzzle as we can; position them to the best of our ability; and, with a bit of luck, a more accurate record of the past gradually evolves.

This is a work in progress; if you have information and/or artifacts that can enrich this collection of Darrtown-related history and/or make it more accurate, please contact the Darrtown webmaster, via the link in the footer, at the bottom of this page.
