Guilford Architecture

This summer the exhibit at the Thomas Griswold House will be on Guilford Architecture. William Weld was a significant builder of early homes in town. His descendent Stephen Dudley has donated architectural drawings and a wonderful portrait of him. We have also obtained some of his diaries and ledgers which give us much information about him and the buildings he built. Click here for the link to the lecture Stephen gave on his third great grandfather at the 2020 GKS Virtual Annual Meeting!
