Overview / Comments
The former Bristol Office Supply Building once housed the Bristol Herald Courier. This two story building is very unique in its design and structure. Built in 1871, the building was the mainstay of Moore Street for many years as the offices and printing of the Bristol Courier began at this site in 1871 under the direction of John Slack, and became Bristol's first daily newspaper in 1888. The daily newspaper took over the Courier in 1907, and soon became the Bristol Herald Courier, which it is still known as today.
The building has a great history as well as a number of the original components. The entrance has much of its original charm and appointments.
Located next to the Birth Place of Country Music Museum and the Bristol Hotel, the property has great potential. It even has it's own Parking Lot!
Built in the middle of the downtown area just an alley off of State Street, the main floor is said to be above the flood plain. While the main structure of the building is concrete and brick, the supporting structure is mainly large wooden beams with high ceilings and soaring windows,all of which makes this building a rare opportunity for renovation as all sides of the building are unobstructed windows which is especially suited for LOFT Renovation.
