Walking Tour Volunteers

Volunteer Tour Guides Needed for Around The Green Walking Tours – sponsored by the Guilford Preservation Alliance (GPA)

May – October
Saturdays – 11:00 a.m.
Sundays – 12:00 p.m.
(Weather permitting)

Free guided walking tours begin at The Guilford Information Plaza, 32 Church Street, Guilford, CT. They are led by volunteers who have been given a brief training course, and who are equipped with an iPad containing historical information about various people and the houses and businesses they occupied, most of which are on the National Register of Historic Places.

Visitors explore over 375 years of Guilford’s history. They learn about the local Indians, New England slavery, how Guilford is connected to the saving of the Connecticut Charter (1687), the Salem Witch Trials (1692), and the Statue of Liberty.  Other entertaining historical stories are added, making this tour sure to please visitors of all ages.
