Local history

"Guilford and the I-91 Expressway Construction" (via Zoom): Imagine Guilford in the 1940s and 1950s. Route 5 coming into Guilford was the eastern gateway to VT. All traffic, buses, trucks, and autos came north through Guilford. Travelers were greeted by open farmland and a variety of motor courts, small restaurants, filling stations and road side farm stands. It was a different world. In the late 1950s and early 1960s, the construction of Interstate 91 transformed Guilford and VT. Some Guilford farms and businesses were divided, disrupted or destroyed. 7-8 p.m. Three local residents talk about living through the I-91 highway construction and how it changed Guilford forever: Jim Henry (Route 5 Farmstand), Jacqueline and Bob Gaines (Gaines Farm), Harry Evans (Evans Farm). Moderator/host: Verandah Porche. Presented by the Guilford Historical Society. This event will be recorded. Free. Zoom. Information: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86136410971.
