We want to note that the state is now allowing vehicle registrations to lapse 30 days beyond the date that the state lifts the civil emergency, however re-registrations can be completed locally by e-mailing or faxing a current insurance card to the town office and then call for a price to pay by phone or by calling ahead for a price and leaving a copy of your insurance and a check in the drop box at the town office and you will be called to let you know when your new registration will be in the box for pick up (average 24 hours).
Welcome to the Town of Guilford, Maine
In the heart of the Maine Highlands, on the banks of the Piscataquis River, rests one of the premier manufacturing communities in Northern New England.
Guilford has a long history of contributing products for the world. Guilford’s work force is proud to manufacture everything from textiles and wood products to state of the art medical implements and supplies.
Residents enjoy a life style that is steeped in the natural beauty of Maine. The area abounds with lakes, streams, and mountains that allow both locals and travelers to enjoy this unspoiled area. Local artisans and merchants offer a wide variety of products and services.
The town enjoys a newly expanded library, a busy recreation schedule for young people and a school system that sets standards in technology and educational excellence.
Guilford is proud to be officially recognized as both the Chickadee and Lilac Capital of Maine. We are grateful to the Maine legislature for recognizing the long tradition of the Town’s inhabitants of fostering and caring for the pristine natural environment within our town.
From the official records of the State of Maine:
“(1-19) the Town of Guilford which has demonstrated extensive efforts to promote its natural resources and to create green economic opportunities, beautification and recreation. Through the consistent and dedicated efforts of the Economic Development Board and the town government, lilac trees of many varieties have been planted on town-owned sites, revitalizing and beautifying the community. The lilacs attract a large population of native Black Capped Chickadees and Guilford now calls itself “The Lilac and Chickadee Capital of Maine.” We acknowledge the efforts of the Town of Guilford in improving and maintaining its beauty;”
The Town offices have been relocated to 3 Park Street, Guilford.
