This old map of Bristol, CT is a hand colored lithograph from 1893. The map was created by D.H. Hurd & Company and printed in Boston, Massachusetts as part of an atlas that depicted each “borough” in the state of Connecticut.

The mapmaker used government surveys, county records and in person visits to create this detailed depiction of what Bristol, Connecticut looked like in the 19th century.

The map shows many Bristol streets landmarks that remain today including Hickory Park, a large tract of land that was originally used as a fairground and racetrack, and part of which is now the home of Muzzy Field.
