We are a quiet, close knit community who accepts new residents with open arms.
During nice weather in Darlington you are bound to see someone walking their dog along the tree lined streets, having a family get-together, smell someone cooking on their grill, and children laughing and playing. You will always find neighbors visiting at the Darlington Mini Mart or giving a passing wave and hello as they pick up their mail at the Post Office.
Darlington Fish Fry & Festival in September always brings the community together with plenty of smiles.
"Darlington's Open Door" To the man or woman who is seeking a home, we say, "Come to Darlington." You will find no better place on earth to live than here, be you seeking a home where only modern conditions and conveniences prevail. Here you will be among people who are happy, contented, hopeful, congenial, and progressive; here Christianity prevails, good schools for the education of your children, all these things Darlington offers to you, and we are ready to "meet the stranger at the gate." We balk at no legitimate enterprise, and welcome every man, rich or poor, who comes to add his efforts to the up building of the town. Here where the Hoosier hospitality abounds, you will be made to feel at home, and you will have a home among the "salt of the earth." (Darlington Herald, April 13, 1917)
