Darien in McIntosh County, Georgia — The American South (South Atlantic)
Saint Andrew's Episcopal Church
This building was burned in 1863, when Darien was put to the torch by Federal troops stationed on St. Simon`s Island, and for several years after services were held in a little church on The Ridge.
In 1872, James K. Clarke, Mr. Langdon and Donald Munroe headed a movement to rebuild Saint Andrew`s in Darien. Other members of the church assisted with money and with work. Plans were secured from England, and the edifice as it now stands, a copy of a little church in Britain, was built.
The church was opened in January of 1879, with the Rev. Samuel Pinkerton as Rector.
