GUILFORD
Small town, big heart
Out and about
BY JAYNE GUERTIN
At a glance
Guilford Center is the heart and soul of this convivial town, and its
residents are often and easily drawn together on the lush town green
– known as Guilford’s Green – for concerts, festivals and other town
gatherings. Looking directly across Guilford’s Green is its classic white
steepled church surrounded by ancient trees. Well-kept historic homes
dot this shoreline community, which boasts the third largest collection
of historic homes in New England. Even though the town is a mix of
residential and summer community, this is a place where everyone seems
to know one another, and its tight-knit feel makes its residents proud.

Five miles in width and twelve miles in length, the town contains 47.6
square miles (including three square miles of water) and a population
of approximately 22,000. Water sports abound along the coastline. For
those who are not inclined toward boating or kayaking there are plenty
of walking trails throughout the town. The downtown area bustles with
foot traffic as shoppers pop in and out of its unique stores, restaurants,
coffee shops and galleries. Breakwater Books is a popular stop, as is The
Place, an uncommon restaurant with outdoor dining only. Lobster and
corn are perpetually on the grille, and its customers are seated at picnic
tables and on tree stumps.
