Bristol

Bristol, Tennessee

History:

Before 1852, what is now the heart of the City of Bristol Tennessee was part of the vast plantation of Rev. James King.  Rev. King had a son-in-law, Mr. Joseph R. Anderson, then a merchant of Blountville, Tennessee, who when learning that two railroads would meet upon the King land, foresaw that the site would be ideal for the founding of a city. On July 10, 1852, Anderson contracted for 100 acres of the King plantation:  forty-eight acres in Tennessee and fifty-two acres in Virginia.  On July 16, 1852, he chose the name "Bristol" for his planned city, narrowly edging out the name "Paradise" by only one point. It can truly be said of Bristol that it is a unique city with a unique past and a unique people.
