Funding awarded by RWU for an Early Bristol interpretive sign

The Roger Williams University Fund for Civic Activities awarded the First Congregational Church in Bristol a $2,500 grant in June, 2019, to design and install an historic interpretive marker in front of the Church, the first in a series of markers within the Sowams Heritage Area. Once completed following a review by the Bristol Historic and Preservation Society and the members of the Church Council, the installed 30 X 30″ marker will describe the first parsonage and meeting house as well as some of the historic objects in the Church museum. A sign now at the corner of High and Bradford Streets in front of the Church building documents the initial 1680 gathering date of the Church, now at its third location.
