Bristol History Project
A Bristol History Project
Presented by Team DISCOVERY
Bristol Central High School
The Bristol Alive Project was completed by the 9th grade Discovery Team during the 1999-2000 school year. The original site, which includes photos and essays about the community in which we live still exists, but most of the pages have been reproduced here in a condensed format.
For Bristol Alive, we posed three questions: Where did we come from? Who are we? Where are we going? In our response to these questions, the goal was to be both informative and entertaining (creative) so that our presentation would make our community "come alive," especially to students for whom the community is too often a place to live, but not to know. After a year of planning and research, which included print material, interviews, visitations, and surveys, we present seven categories: history, culture, education, arts/entertainment, ecology, sports, and visions -- the personality of Bristol. Next year’s DISCOVERY students will continue development of the site. Enjoy!
