Thomas Griswold House Museum was the former home of its namesake and his family from 1774 to 1958. This historic Colonial saltbox style structure is located on a scenic stretch and was bought by the Guilford Keeping Society in 1958. Decorated with early 19th-century period furniture that also features many items from the last owners inventory, the museum also features vintage clothing and photos. Explore the blacksmith shop and the museum shop to get more than a glimpse of the early Puritan settlement. The house was listed to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975.
Located on the edge of Candlewood Lake, the Bear Mountain Reservation is a green stretch of reserve forest looking out at the pristine waters. The park is a great place to hike and camp. Pets are allowed here, so you can take your dog for a walk through interesting trails.
