Centre for the Arts in Historic Bristol Borough
You are cordially invited to join the Friends of the Delaware Canal
for our eighth annual signature event
Faces & Places, a Celebration of the Art and History along the Delaware Canal.
This year we will head south to Bristol Borough, a prize-winning small town overflowing with history and vitality. Our chauffeured tour will include:
The splendid Margaret R. Grundy Museum and its riverside grounds and garden. This Victorian house, renowned for its woodwork and original furnishings, was home to Bristol’s illustrious citizen Joseph R. Grundy and his sister.
Canal Works, an 1880’s era industrial building that was used over the years by a wallpaper printer, a seed company, and a radio equipment manufacturer. It has been masterfully rehabilitated and is now occupied by numerous up-and-coming businesses. The owner of Canal Works has created a two-floor display of Canal photos and fascinating documents and artifacts from the businesses of old.
Dad’s Hat Pennsylvania Rye Whiskey Distillery, located in the historic Grundy Woolen Mill complex, makes small batch, classic rye whiskey with natural local ingredients. Esquire named it “one of the 10 best distilleries in America outside of Kentucky and Tennessee.”
The Bristol Wharf at the foot of Mill Street, the heart of the Borough. A short walk will lead to Riverfront Park with its new dock, the Canal Basin, the King George II Inn, the shops of Mill Street, and some Bristol Stomping going on.
When the tour concludes, join with friends, new and old, at the Centre for the Arts on Mill Street for spirits and an abundant array of hors d’oeuvres and desserts catered by the King George II. Highlighted at the Centre will be vintage and new canal-themed art works that will be up for sale, either direct or by auction.
