History of Darby Borough
In addition to its diverse economy, population, and convenient proximity to the city, Darby has a rich colonial history. Though it was settled and inhabited by Quakers in 1654, Darby was not officially incorporated until May 3, 1853. Unsurprisingly, Darby derives its name from the English city Derby and the county town of Derbyshire, the origin of many of its original colonists. Indeed, the town is full of historic landmarks, including the fifth-oldest all-volunteer Fire Department.
