About Bristol

Bristol, Florida is located in the panhandle of Florida. Bristol is the county seat of Liberty County and was settled in 1859. At the time of settlement Bristol had one store, three saw mills, grist mills, a hotel and several churches. The Charter of the City was established in 1958.

Today Bristol has a population of approximately 1,000 residents. Bristol's residents are known as helpful, caring people. Hard work and the love of our natural resources are the back bone of our residents. Bristol is surrounded by the beautiful Apalachicola River which is the largest river by volume in the state of Florida.

The Bristol Volunteer Fire Department is a true testament to the giving nature of our residents. The small fire department made up solely of volunteers is depended on by residents and they are always there when called upon.

Make plans to visit our "Friendly City" soon and feel the southern hospitality for yourself.
