Welcome to Guilford’s 375th Anniversary Celebration

Founded in 1639, the historic shoreline Town of Guilford, Connecticut is celebrating its 375th Anniversary throughout 2014. We welcome you - our current and past residents, our local business owners and in-town employees, our organizations and civil groups, our neighboring Shoreline communities, and all who enjoy New England charm throughout the seasons - to join in our year-long celebrations.

To kick off this milestone year, the Guilford 375th Anniversary Celebration Committee is planning a series of signature events, starting with the Guilford's Generations Jubilee which was held on December 31, 2013. You can join in the fun by attending our events, sponsoring our activities, volunteering your time and talents, sharing your Guilford Story, and spreading the word to your family and friends. Also, feel free to contact us at any time - we'd love to hear from you!

An annual rite of spring has been the tapping of sugar maples by generations of Guilford families. Guilford's largest (and probably New Haven County's largest) sugaring operation is the one that many pass by on Rte 77 just south of Lake Quonnipaug run by Buster. Here the sap was flowing and Buster Scranton was working late into the night at his Maple Grove Farm Sugar House in North Guilford on March 10, 2014.
