Come and learn how the development of Bristol was affected by the growth of its streets. Bob Adamczyk has identified four periods of street growth based on his year and half research project to determine how Bristol streets and geographical areas got their names.

He has put together a definitive historical record, which will be available for sale. This program will be presented at the Bristol Historical Society, 98 Summer Street, Bristol, on November 21, 2013 at 7pm. The program is free to members and $5.00 to non-members.
