My name is Pandora and I am the official history mascot for the Bristol Historical & Preservation Society's KIDS TALES FROM JAIL newsletter. Written by the History KIDS, BH&PS staff, and guest writers, we publish these newsletters on this site, with extra printed copies available at the BH&PS Headquarters.
PANDORA'S BLOG is about he individual historical events that shaped Bristol's history. Read about "old" families, "lost" businesses, our founding fathers, the "pest house" on the Town Common, and more!
The October 2020 KIDS Tales from Jail newsletter is all about slavery in the Revolutionary Era, and was researched, written, edited, and designed by four of the History KIDS themselves. Because of the Society's focus this past summer and fall with guest speakers in the Conversations About Slavery series on Zoom (see the Events Page), the History KIDS took on this same topic to research and write about for themselves. Thank you and a bravo to Isabelle Courtney, Leah Dieterich, Liam Reich, and Elsa White. All four are students at Mount Hope High School in Bristol.
