Guilford Town Green and Surrounding Historical Districts

New Haven Camera Club’s Photo Challenge for May

is a trip to the Guilford Town Green

 

The large, almost 12-acre rectangle in the center of town has several war memorials, including one from the Civil War. Framing the green are three unique churches, as well as a number of historic homes and businesses – perfect opportunity for architectural, landscape, street photography, and closeup photographs.

In fact, Guilford Historic Heritage (www.visitguilfordct.com) states there are 450-plus historical homes from the 17th century to the 19th century, including two Historical Districts with 22 buildings downtown!

Parallel parking is permitted around the green’s perimeter except on Park Street.
You can also use the parking lot at the Guilford Public Library located across from the Green.

Remember – please send up to 4 images to Colleen Reilly (www.colleen@halleycomm.net) by the deadline of May 31st. Please follow this format example for naming your images:  bbyer_01, bbyer_02, etc. They should be sized using the usual NHCC 1400 width x 1050 height.

The slide show will premiere on the NHCC Facebook page in early June.

So- Let’s get going to the Guilford Town Green. What will you capture? Hmm.
