Located south of Savannah, Darien is a small town in coastal Georgia first settled in 1736 by Scottish Highlanders. A British fort was located nearby and the area was affected by Spanish and Indian attacks. Much of the town was burned during the Civil War. Today, it has less than 2,000 residents and the main industry is seafood. Pictured above is the Darien History Museum, one of the town’s few attractions.
