Did you know?

The name Darien was settled on when town residents failed to find a name for replacing Middlesex Parish as many families wanted it to be named after themselves. One sailor who had formerly traveled to the Isthmus of Darien, which was then a part of the Spanish empire proposed the name Darien which residents later adopted. All over Darien and it’s neighborhoods, Fairfield County Excavation has managed to build a lasting reputation, thanks to its high-quality services.
