“Popularized as the inspiration for the town ‘Stars Hollow’ in the show, “Gilmore Girls,” Guilford has the old-world charm of a small town. It seems to be romantically protected yet not isolated from modernization. A 1950’s sitcom come to life, you can hear residents saying, “Meet me in the town green,” as Guilford’s center square is fully enclosed by quaint shops and buildings on all four sides.”
