The Bristol Train Station, and the railroad, are the primary reasons Bristol was founded.
Built in 1902 and beautifully restored, the Bristol Train Station now serves as a charming backdrop for weddings, social gatherings, corporate events, business meetings, parties, and more.
Simply walking around and looking across to the lovingly restored train station building makes it almost seem possible to feel the history and sense the importance of what is Bristol’s fourth station.
The facility provides modern-day amenities while preserving its rich history through timeless architecture and design. Kegley Hall, the historic waiting room, features cathedral ceilings, Gothic-style architecture, original flooring, and beautiful chandeliers.
Although the last passenger train pulled out of here in May 1971, the station was lovingly restored for the town’s sesquicentennial (150th birthday) in 2006.
Like the nearby Bristol Sign, the station is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
