Bristol Real Estate encompasses both Bristol Borough and Bristol Township municipalities situated approximately 30 minutes north of center city Philadelphia along the Delaware River. Bristol Real Estate is home to the noted Bristol Riverside Theatre, a professional theatre hosting year round productions, and Margaret R. Grundy Library, offering programs, lectures and events. Both municipalities are cultural hubs to Lower Bucks County. There are four monuments erected in the Riverfront Park to symbolize the town's cultural diversity. There are many annual festivals representing the ethnic heritage such as: Celtic Day, African-American Day and Italian Day. Additional activities include Historic Bristol Day, summer concerts, an antique auto show, and an indoor ice rink and recreation center.
Bristol Real Estate History:
Bristol Real Estate welcomed its European settlers in the early 1700's. Incorporated in 1720, aside from a few revisions, the town's original charter remains in effect. Bristol was a major land route between Philadelphia and New York City. Along this route many prominent people established residency. Several of those homes can still be found within Bristol Real Estate bordering Radcliffe and Mill streets and reflect the architecture reminiscent of three centuries ago.
Situated along the Delaware River, Bristol was originally secured as a port and dock but with the opening of the Delaware Canal and Pennsylvania Railroad it quickly became a transportation center as well as a prime location for industry which flourished during the Industrial Revolution. The Delaware Canal, opening in 1832, runs from Bristol to Easton, PA and is still preserved as a landmark today.
During World War I, a shipyard opened in Bristol establishing space for the construction of merchant ships. At the end of the war, the shipyard was converted into an aircraft factory which built amphibious planes and during the Second World War constructed military planes.
Today the active Bristol Real Estate riverside community manages to integrate the essence of its historical past with modern day living.
