The town of Bristol was planned and laid out by Joseph Rhea Anderson in 1852. Development began on this site in 1853 with the erection of Anderson's combined home and business. The building served as the community's first store, post office, bank, and realty office. The first election, town council meeting, court session, church service, wedding, and birth took place there. Anderson is buried in East Hill Cemetery seven blocks east.
