My name is Pandora and I am the official history mascot for the Bristol Historical & Preservation Society's KIDS TALES FROM JAIL newsletter. We have put copies of these newsletters online, starting with the latest one from July 2020. See below.
HISTORY BLOG! I have started my very own history blog. Yup, a blog. Me! While being confined during the pandemic, I thought it would be worthwhile AND fun to look at the historical events that shaped Bristol's history. See below for my blog and the KIDS TALES FROM JAIL newsletters.
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.
