BH&PS HISTORY KIDS
AND GROWN-UPS, TOO
No bones about it, I'm Pandora,
the official BH&PS mascot for the
BH&PS History KIDS.
I dig for history... that's what I do best and then I like to share my findings. I have created a history blog and I also contribute to the KIDS Tales from Jail newsletter. As I dig up these stories for the History KIDS, I hope parents and other adults will also enjoy reading my little known and fascinating snippets of Bristol History.

As of December 2015, Fire, Burglar and Security systems at the BHPS are fully installed due to the receipt of a generous $15,000 matching grant from The 1772 Foundation. The BHPS has motion alarms and security cameras throughout the building, has a secured entry alarm system and a fire alarm system that is directly linked to the Town of Bristol Fire Department. As part of its 2015 Matching Grants for Historic Preservation made available to organizations in Connecticut, New Jersey and Rhode Island, The 1772 Foundation Grant has enabled the Society to protect its unique research library, its extensive paper document room, the significant portrait collection, and all of the other artifacts throughout the building.
