Summary
Since 1762, Bristol has prospered alongside the New Haven River. Its mighty waters powered mills and hardworking farmers, inventors, and shopkeepers fueled the local economy. Local author Kerry K. Skiffington describes Bristol's history through brief essays highlighting its most remarkable people and moments, from the rise of Outlook Club and the Bristol Town Band to the many floods and fires that have challenged but never broken the town. She also uncovers forgotten figures, like Dr. Francis Briggs, "known as much for his music as for his ministrations," and state representative Florence Cragen, one of many Vermont women to serve the legislature during World War II. Carefully researched and enlivened by interviews with longtime residents, Bristol, Vermont: Historically Speaking captures the essence of the town's enduring charm
