Darling & Son Oyster Packers. Darling struck it big with oysters.Darling & Son Oyster Packers in the early 1880s, he became one of the leaders of the seafood industry that restored Civil War-ravaged Hampton. The city's waterfront turned into a place that teemed with packing plants and piles of oyster shells, including J. Darling & Son's famous four-story-tall pile. The Darling plant typically employed about 260 workers in peak season. Workers shucked oysters or manned a fleet of boats with names like the Kecoughtan, the Powhatan, the Winona and the Pamunkey. They also built special log canoes for harvesting oysters, according to an exhibit at the Hampton History Museum. Shells weren't wasted, but rather provided beds for new oysters or served in the paving of sidewalks or streets.
