Bristol, Rhode Island

Bristol is a quintessential New England waterfront town in Bristol County, Rhode Island. Located on a peninsula with Narragansett Bay on its west and Mount Hope Bay on its east, Bristol is halfway between Providence and Newport and easily accessible from Route 114 or Route 136 via Route 195, and from the Mount Hope Bridge via Route 24. Steeped in history that spans three centuries, Bristol was the site of the first battle of King Philip's war in 1675. As a result of the war, Plymouth Colony in Massachusetts retained Bristol lands until finally transferring them to the Rhode Island Colony in 1747. Bristol is committed to preserve its picture-perfect charm of a historic port town. This coastal community is home to Roger Williams University, Herreshoff Marine Museum, and Colt State Park. Bristol is known to have the oldest continuously celebrated Independence Day festivities in the United States which include the "The Military, Civic and Firemen's Parade" on July 4th. Thus, earning the nickname, "America's most patriotic town".

Major industries in Bristol include boat building and other marine-related industries, manufacturing and tourism. Herreshoff, the Bristol-based boat company constructed five consecutive America's Cup Defenders between 1893 and 1920.

Bristol’s significant shipbuilding and maritime history, as well as periods of construction, have made exposure to asbestos an issue for workers and their loved ones.
