An old part of Franconia, Guilford can be found intersecting both Kingstowne
and Rose Hill
. While many communities have begun to flow with these modern times, Guilford has managed to maintain its idyllic feel.
Guilford can be found north of Telegraph Road, east of South Van Dorn
Street, west of Rose Hill Drive and south of Franconia Road. It is
characterized by small, disconnected homes situated in large land areas
(half-acre lots are quite commonplace), with some homes occupying as
much as two lots.
Not much of a transportation hub, it would be odd to find pedestrians
and vehicles clogging the streets of this town – thus, it is safe to
say that Guilford is a relatively quiet community.
Some of the community establishments found here are Thomas Edison
High School found in the northeast area, which is also the location of a
post office. The Greendale Golf course and Washington Golf’s driving
range can also be found in Guilford.
As a means of entertainment, Guilford citizens often make their way
to Kingstown’s strip mall for a movie or to King Street Blues for a
drink or two.
