Darke County settlers began to build housing around 1820. It is not unusual to find some of those early log structures still standing throughout the county. About 1845, builders began to erect lovely brick and frame homes. They reflected their colonial heritage and the new Victorian influences of the era. Many have been restored to their former elegance, blending modern conveniences with historical character. Darke County builders and contractors offer quality workmanship. Apartment and rental housing is also available throughout the county.
For seniors seeking to maintain independent living with selected services provided, Chestnut Village, a complex of two-unit homes nestled amid curving streets and landscaped lawns, is located adjacent to the Brethren Retirement Community.
