Welcome Friend has served Bristol as a motto since a wooden sign greeted the Marquis de Lafayette on his Farewell Tour of America in 1824. The original sign still hangs within the Borough Hall, where it continues to greet newcomers as well as locals. More than three centuries have passed since the town’s first European settlers occupied the 262 acres along the Delaware River now known as Bristol Borough. A major land route linking Philadelphia and New York City passed through Bristol and hotels along this road hosted a bevy of travelers when the United States capitol was located in Philadelphia just after the American Revolution. Several of the first foreign ambassadors to America selected Bristol for their homes. These homes are still standing and are part of three centuries of architecture reflected in the residences and public building of the town.Because of Bristol’s location as a crossroads and due to its industrial history, the town has a long attracted and accepted a diverse citizenry. Four monuments in the riverfront park served as a reminder of the town’s cultural diversity and festivals centered on ethnic heritage are held annually. During the summer months, free weekly concerts are provided in Riverfront Park by the local Lions Club. Musicians perform in a gazebo erected by the Club. In autumn, the historic society sponsors Historic Bristol Day reminiscent of the great fairs held in town during the colonial period. In the past half century, Bristol has experienced a renaissance in the preservation of its historic buildings. A professional theater was opened and continues to provide theatrical productions year round. A state-of-the-art library serves not only as an information center, but as place where children and adults can expand their knowledge by attending programs, lectures, and events. Next to the Library is the Grundy Museum, a Victorian-era house museum that offers free guided tours and exhibits the elegant belongings of the former occupants. An indoor ice rink and recreation center attracts both children and adults.
