COVID-19 may have changed plans for Historic Bristol Day 2020 this year, however, we are still honoring our town’s history through a Bristol “Then and Now” Virtual Scavenger Hunt, hosted by the Grundy Library’s Archive! By using digitized photographs of Bristol Borough historic sites available on the Grundy Library’s website (https://archive.grundylibrary.org/exhibits/show/historic-bristol-day-2020--bri), participants will be able to “hunt” for former Bristol establishments around town. Simply print out the selected images of Bristol “then” locations, visit Bristol to find the current or “now” location, then snap a picture of the former building over top of its current location. Post it to social media and tag the Grundy Library, or email your entries to archive@grundylibrary.org. The contest will be open from October 1st through 11:59 PM on October 17th (Historic Bristol Day). Participants who find every location and submit their “now” photographs to the Library will be entered into a drawing to win a prize! The prize is a “gift card prize pack” of Cesare’s and Amazon gift cards (each $25). The winner will be notified the week after Historic Bristol Day.
