The historically significant 'Dr. Kirk House', built c. 1810, is one of the oldest buildings in the village of Darlington and in northeastern Harford County. This impressive all stone home was constructed with local Port Deposit granite and is sited on a beautiful 1.65 acre lot. Information regarding historic renovations, resources and credits which may be available can be found in DOCUMENTS in Bright. Located at the main crossroads of Darlington, it was used as both a residential and commercial structure over the years. The current zoning is VR (Village Residential) with VB (Village Business) overlay. The interior of this home is an impressive 4538 sq ft above grade and provides a rare opportunity to own many truly historic features, including step pine hardwood flooring, horse-hair plaster walls and a functional cooking fireplace in the original kitchen. The main level of the home has a private bedroom suite with a bedroom, library, full bath and private entrance which has been used in the past as a doctor's office by Dr. Kirk and his son. The second floor features an additional 5 bedrooms, full bath, laundry room and storage room. The third floor has 2 finished rooms with windows. The property also contains an all stone 'Smoke House' originally used to store and smoke meats. The home features a front porch, a side porch, a brick walkway and courtyard between the main house and the 'Long Wing' as it was called. The original home consisted of the main house and a separate kitchen structure. The Long Wing running behind the house is the attachment of a kitchen to the main house. This was done, according to the owner, in the 1840s. Updates include the slate roof, boiler, hot water heater, electrical wiring and connected to Darlington public water. This house exemplifies living history. According to local legend the house could have been built as early as 1745 and was part of the Underground Railroad.
