Darby Pioneer Memorial Museum – Historical items of the past. Darby’s Pioneer Memorial Museum (see image above) was originally one of the first hand-hewn homestead cabins built in the area. It was crafted by early settler Evelin Matteson in 1886 on his homestead near the mouth of Tin Cup Creek. It is located beside the Town Hall (Map Link)

DARBYRANGERUS Forest Service –  Darby Ranger Station Visitor Center and Museum – History and recreation come together at the historic Darby Ranger Stations Visitor’s Center and Museum. The building, built between 1937 and 1939 by the Civilian Conservation Corps, was the district ranger station until 1964.  After a new ranger station was built, the old one was used for storage.
