Darlington is a tiny town located in the state of Maryland. With a population of 418 people and two constituent neighborhoods, Darlington is the 253rd largest community in Maryland. Darlington has an unusually large stock of pre-World War II architecture, making it one of the older and more historic towns.
Unlike some towns, Darlington isn’t mainly white- or blue-collar. Instead, the most prevalent occupations for people in Darlington are a mix of both white- and blue-collar jobs. Overall, Darlington is a town of sales and office workers, construction workers and builders and service providers. There are especially a lot of people living in Darlington who work in office and administrative support (28.14%), sales jobs (9.96%) and personal care services (8.23%).
Telecommuters are a relatively large percentage of the workforce: 9.52% of people work from home. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce it is high relative to the nation. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.
Because of many things, Darlington is a great place for families with children to consider. First of all, many other families with children live here, making Darlington a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families, as well as find family-oriented services and community. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic values. With regard to real estate, Darlington has a high rate of owner-occupied single family homes, which tends to reflect stability in the local community. Finally, Darlington’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.
Residents will find that the town is relatively quiet. This is because it is not over-populated, and it has fewer college students, renters, and young children - all of whom can be noisy at times. So, if you're looking for a relatively peaceful place to live, Darlington is worth considering.
One downside of living in Darlington, however, is that residents on average have to contend with a long commute, spending on average 34.34 minutes every day commuting to work.
Darlington is a small town, and as such doesn't have a public transit system that people use to get to and from their jobs every day.
