Bristol Borough, Pennsylvania, situated on the Delaware River, was founded in 1681, one of the oldest communities in the state. The town of roughly 10,000 people is in the heart of Bucks County, just outside of Philadelphia. Once a prospering mill town, the main street was once booming, with full shops and employment. Yet when the mills closed, jobs left and so did the people. The town started turning into a shell of what it once was.
The big employers may not be coming back to Bristol Borough, but the community is slowly coming back to life, with new store owners and a sense of vitality that bodes well for the future.
