For the final installment of “Historic Buildings of Bristol” the oldest house in Bristol is prominently featured.

The home is located at 14 Daniel Road. It was built in 1729 by Benjamin Buck, from Southington, and his wife Mercy Parsons.

They lived in the house until 1736.

The house was once thought to have not survived, until it was discovered in 1951 hidden behind overgrown trees and brush!
