Guilford History
Guilford is an unincorporated town in York Township, Dearborn County, Indiana. It is located at the forks of Tanners Creek. Charles L. and Josiah Campbell discovered that a railroad was soon to be built in the area and platted Guilford in 1850. The railroad created a town that was attractive to settlement and commerce. In 1875, Guilford boasted an Odd Fellows Hall, a Grange Hall, a school and a small railroad station.

Telephone Exchange and Post Office

Guilford is the only unincorporated community in Dearborn County that has its own telephone exchange prefix, (487), and its own post office, which was established at the forks of Tanners Creek in 1841.
