Historic Sites.

History is told through the buildings and homes in a city. The Bristol Historical Association  promotes an interest in the history of Bristol by designating properties with historical significance.  A generous contribution from Mr. William W. “Bud” Walling financed the cost of the first twenty-five plaques. Much credit is due to the late Mr Walling for his vital part in the promotion of the Landmark Designation program.
