Once we are allowed to reopen, the BH&PS will be extending our exhibit "Lost Main Street: Mom and Pop Businesses of Bristol's Past".
We feel that this pandemic has created a new "Lost Main Street" by sidelining the independent and small businesses that help make Bristol such a wonderful place to live and to visit. When we reopen we want to include stories from you, the Bristol small business owners, into our exhibit.
We want visitors to understand the struggles and sacrifices you are making, as well as any creative ways that you have found to deal with the shuttering of your business during the COVIDE-19 pandemic.
If you are interested in contributing and would like to learn more, please email our curator, Lisa, at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you know a small business owner that would like to share their story, please pass this on to them.
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.
