Event description

Description

Walking & Bus Tour
Catherine W. Zipf, Bristol Historical & Preservation Society, Tour Leader

AIA CES: 4 LU

Under the patronage of the slave-trading DeWolf family, Bristol quickly rebuilt itself after the American Revolution in glorious Greek and Gothic Revival styles. Its cosmopolitan attitudes are evident in the many high-style structures that still stand in this historic seaport. After the DeWolf family declared bankruptcy, Bristol regrouped under the leadership of the Herreshoff family, whose boat building business drove Bristol's Victorian and resort era. This tour will investigate the history of Bristol's architectural legacy with a special focus on its 19th-century structures.

This tour is open to the public and is part of the 72nd Annual International Conference of the Society of Architectural Historians.
