WELCOME TO THE GUILFORD HISTORY PROJECT SITE
GUILFORD WELCOMES YOU - Inc. 1816
Item Contributed by
Guilford Historical Society
Welcome to Guilford, a small central Maine mill town with an industrial heritage reaching back two hundred years; young, as far as towns go in New England, yet witness to significant change in methodology, technology, and economy throughout the years. In these pages and through the following exhibits, we hope to share our stories, spark your interest, invite your questions about our village, and open to view the forgotten and overlooked jewels of our historic past.
Enjoy your brief visit with us through this living document as we journey back to a former age to explore the times and trials that forged our collective character. Learn about our people, from the early settlers, farmers, and land holders, through merchants and businessmen, to the soldiers and heroes who lived and died here, and of the sacrifices of sweat, tears and even lives expended in the shaping and preservation of this place we call home.
