Community[edit]

The 2012 Apple Festival.

Local children attend the Darlington Elementary School, which is located in Darlington. The elementary school has one class per grade level (K through 5), and two autism classrooms. There is not a Darlington High School, so children usually enroll in Havre de Grace High School.[3]

An annual apple festival is held in Darlington the first Saturday in October, and attracts almost 60,000 people.[2]

Darlington and the surrounding communities are provided fire and EMS service by the Darlington Volunteer Fire Company.

Darlington has its own library at 1134 Main Street. Darlington also has several houses of worship, including Harmony Presbyterian Church, Grace Episcopal Church, Darlington United Methodist Church, Deer Creek Friends Meetinghouse, and Hosanna AME Church located in historic Berkley, Maryland.
