Guilford was first settled by European settlers in 1639, when the puritans purchased land from local Native Americans, located halfway between Saybrook and New Haven. The town was organized around common ground called a green, a defining feature which remains untouched to this day. Just down the street from the Guilford Green, you can visit the oldest stone house in New England, The Henry Whitfield State Museum, which was built in 1639.

If you love historic house museums, especially of the Colonial style, then Guilford is the destination for you. There are no less than five historic home museums in Guilford, including Dudley Farm and the Hyland House. Hyland House which was built in 1713 and is one of the best preserved "saltbox" style houses from the period. You can also visit the home of one of the city's first settlers at the Comfort Starr House, also renowned as one of the earliest wooden-framed homes in the state.

Guilford's storied past continues to the Revolutionary War period, when locals fought off a British raiding party. In later years, the city became a hotspot for Victorians seeking a summer cottage escape. Today, many people come for that very reason, seeking a seaside town with historic charm, great dining, and a variety of relaxing recreational activities, from hiking to fishing, swimming, and shopping.

Bishop's Orchards is one of the area's most popular modern-day destinations, in all seasons. Beyond the locally made wine, families come from near and far to pick the perfect pumpkin, apples, or raspberries and enjoy locally made treats like apple cider and pumpkin pie. Bishop's is also known to be the destination for the freshest produce, meat, and dairy products around.

It's not often that you find a town that appeals to history buffs, beach bums, and outdoor enthusiasts alike. Guilford combines all these attractions and more, making this city one of the top crowd-pleasing New England destinations for couples and families.
