Raffle helps maintain historic buildings, fund kids’ programs

Congratulations to the winners to this year’s Guilford Historical Society Raffle — Lana Golden, Anne Montgomery and K. Orr!

The raffle was a super success and raised money to support the maintenance and much-needed repairs for our town’s important historic buildings (including the 1837 Guilford Center Meeting House and 1797 Brick School House), as well as expand our museum operations and educational programming for Guilford kids.

The Guilford Historical Society thanks everyone who participated in this year’s raffle, and send a big shout out to residents and local businesses who made generous donations.
