Patricia Lovelace reports that there is a Charles Hubbard exhibit room at the Medad Stone Tavern Museum, and that the Guilford Keeping Society inherited his painting and camping equipment (this equipment is shown in several photos in the digital archive of the Guilford Free Library).  The GKS has many other items relateed to Guilford's famous impressionist artist.
