Century-old Greenwood Cemetery sign restored

Posted on December 12, 2016 |
By Reg Dearborn



Greenwood restored sign.png

BRISTOL — The sign that was installed over the middle gate of the Greenwood Cemetery in Bristol in 1904 stood proudly for many years.

But the elements took their toll on the metal gateway, which stood just north of Route 116 near the base of Stone Hill, less than a mile west of the village. And the sign, which had been damaged at least three times since it was installed, was removed after being badly damaged the last time about 25 years ago.

Posted on December 5, 2016 |
By Gaen Murphree



BRISTOL — At least for now, the historic fire station at 32 North St. in Bristol will continue to stand empty.

The Bristol selectboard on Nov. 21 voted against Bristol resident Robert Bernstein’s proposal to purchase the site and make it into a museum of 19th century woodworking equipment. In the same motion, the board tabled its discussion of what to do with the property until after the March 2017 town meeting.

The Bristol Fire Department left the 1897 firehouse last July when it moved into a new fire station on West Street.
