History

Darlington was platted by Enoch Cox in 1836.[3]

The Pennsylvania Rail Road (Vandalia district) made stops in Darlington for many years from the late 19th century up until the 1960s. The right-of-way can still be seen to this day along state road 47 with its numerous wood-pile trestles. Many people in Darlington would ride the PRR to Lake Maxinkuckee on weekends during the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The Vandalia District started southwest of Terre Haute and bi-sected Montgomery County from Waveland, through Crawfordsville, to Darlington, continuing on to Colfax where it crossed the NYC Big Four branch.

On June 2, 1990 an F-3 tornado touched down southwest of Darlington and destroyed multiple homes, barns, and property around the area. The town suffered significant damage from the storm.
