Old building in Bristol

100_2561According to an inventory of historic structures in Elkhart County published in 2005, this building was originally built in either the 1830s or 1840s. It is located on the northeast corner of the intersection of State Roads 120 and 15 in downtown Bristol. The building is of the Greek Revival architectural style. I am told there was a general store in this building at one time, though I am not for sure what it is being used for presently. Fittingly, the county history museum is only about a block away to the west on 120. Downtown Bristol has quite a few historic structures still standing.



About historynut11

My name is Tim Ashley and I am a newspaper editor/reporter/photographer in Milford, Indiana, and live in nearby Goshen, Indiana. A deeply held and sincere passion of mine is history and learning from the past. I enjoy a wide variety of history topics, but particularly local history, noted American highways (Lincoln Highway and Route 66), railroad history and the Civil War. I believe we can learn much from the past and that past shapes who we are today. I also enjoy visiting museums and historical sites, as well as taking photos of remnants from the past still standing.
