Major industries include boat building and related marine industries, manufacturing, and tourism.
About Bristol, Rhode Island
Until 1854, Bristol was one of the five state capitals of Rhode Island. Before the Pilgrims arrived in 1620, the Pokanokets occupied much of Southern New England, including Plymouth. They had previously suffered from a series of plagues which killed off large segments of their population, and their leader, the Massasoit Osamequin, befriended the early settlers.
