A tour of Bristol, RI (pics)

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Today was a beautiful day with the thermometer hitting 60 degrees. I decided to go for a walk with my camera through the center of Bristol, RI.

Bristol is the home of the nation’s oldest Fourth of July parade. It’s easy to tell the parade route through town by the markings on the street.



Bristol has many older, historic homes. Some of these are now offices, shops and restaurants, while some are still residences.

Off of the main street, there are more of these homes on smaller streets that lead you down to the water.



Many of the town buildings and churches are made out of stone

This is Linden Place. It has been turned into a museum.







Just a few from down near the water





That concludes today’s tour

Oh what a pretty town - thanks for posting the pictures Karen, it's truly beautiful

There are some beautiful windows there - I love pretty windows

Did I spot a Courthouse in there? I have a collection of photos of American courthouses from towns that we have visited (comes from being a lawyer I guess )

I wish I did live in the town I live a few towns away.

It does look like a courthouse, doesn't it? I have always thought that. It is actually a school.

Wow! When we discussed the historic homes and buildings in your area, I had no idea they would be this magnificent, Karen! They're stunningly beautiful! I would really enjoy visiting the Linden Place Museum. Do you ever venture in there? I like the little clock in the stone church, too. Does it still keep accurate time? The red, white, and blue street markings for the Fourth of July parade are so patriotic, and what a special honor for the town to hold being home of the oldest one! It would be so lovely to live on the little road down by the water. The view is so gorgeous!

Thank you so much for our tour! Spectacular!

Gorgeous! You're making me miss New England!

I drove past this almost every day when I lived in NY...Chicago is awesome, but I miss the old Victorians!
