A borough in Delaware County, Pennsylvania located southwest of Center City, Philadelphia, Darby is a place that about 10,700 people call home. Settled in 1682 by a group of Quaker families, Darby was a name derived from the English city of Derby, which is the county town of Derbyshire. Darby founder, John Blunston, immigrated to Pennsylvania in fall of 1682. He was a man involved in many things, including agriculture, real estate, and the trading of goods. As a Quaker in the early days of Pennsylvania, Blunston was close to William Penn himself, and he was an active participant in Pennsylvanian politics. Darby is about .84 square miles of only land, and that land is definitely full of history. The borough is home to the 5th oldest volunteer fire department, the Darby Free Library, and the Darby Friends Burial ground, which is the oldest Cemetery in Pennsylvania that is still being used today.
