In the 1800's, Bristol County saw the rise of industry and seafaring trade. New Bedford became the world's most important whaling port. Fall River became the globe's leading producer of cotton textiles. Attleboro and Taunton were national leaders in precious metalsmithing and jewelry manufacturing.

As a result of commercial activity, the region produced great captains of Industry and wealthy barons of trade including Henry Huttleston Rogers of Standard Oil fame. A testament to the times, great monuments of native granite and magnificent homes of the Victorian Era rose throughout the area. Wonderful collections of Richardsonian Gothic are evident everywhere - especially in Easton with a formidable collection.

The region has become a true American 'melting pot'. Bristol County offers a host of ethnic festivals, feasts, restaurants, old world markets and specialty shops. The famous old whaling port of NEW BEDFORD, 45 miles due south of Boston, is still home to one of the nation's most prosperous fishing fleets which, each year, haul in the largest catch on the east coast. Ongoing development and a waterfront highway have obscured some of its past, but on County Street many fine old houses still stand.
