During this holiday season, we’d like to thank our members for everything they do to keep history central to Guilford’s unique character.

With their help, this year the Hyland House co-hosted the 25th Annual Early Guilford Days for our town’s students. We welcomed hundreds of visitors from around the region. We taught organic herb dyeing, beekeeping, blacksmithing, and hearth cooking. And, we laid a permanent memorial to Candace Bow, the enslaved woman who lived in the house during the eighteenth century.

The Hyland House stands in the center of Guilford as a vivid reminder of our town’s long history. With the help of our members, we can continue to share that history for generations to come. We thank them for their support and wish everyone a happy holiday season.
