This report is the result of a historical and architectural survey of the town of Bristol, Rhode Island, begun by the Rhode Island Historical Preservation Commission in 1971. It included buildings and areas which have some special relationship to the economic, political, social, and cultural evolution of Bristol from its founding to the present. The publication provides a planning tool for a community-wide preservation program, a resource in the study of state and local history to awaken and foster civic pride, helps make residence aware of the historical and architectural environment in which they live, and encourages sensitive rehabilitation of historic properties. From the Old House Journal reference library.
