Federal Hill - Architectural Heaven

Main Street, Bristol Connecticut around 1910
The great city of Bristol, Connecticut and it's crowning jewel, Federal Hill. Incredible architecture every way one turns. Originally an agricultural village, Bristol boomed in the mid-1800s with the rise of manufacturing companies, most prominent among them J. H. Sessions & Son and Ingraham Clocks. Throughout the 1800s and into the turn of the century, Bristol prospered and talented architects were summoned to build homes for the families of industry owners. Most prolific was Joel Tiffany Case (above), designing one gorgeous home after another in the affluent neighborhood of Federal Hill. His houses still stand today, an example of the finest Victorian architecture with period details and craftsmanship no longer found. You too, could be the lucky resident of one of these properties, as many are presently on the market!
