The local history group that is seeking to move and renovate the old Bristol town hall anounced Friday that it has received  501(c)(3) status from the Internal Revenue Service.

Here is the announcement from the Bristol Wisconsin Historical Society:

The Bristol Wisconsin Historical Society received its 501(c)(3) status from the IRS making them a tax-exempt non-profit organization and last August they were incorporated in the sate of Wisconsin. The society is looking for partners to help them save the historic 1870 Bristol Town hall and renovate it into a museum. The relocation and restoration of the building will benefit the community and preserve our history for future generations. It will be used to house a museum for educational purposes by schools, scouting organizations, community programs, and citizens that benefit from the learning experience of an original 1870’s building and all of it’s historical artifacts. To become a partner or to donate, please contact BristolWiHist@gmail.com or John McCabe 857-9115.

501(c)(3) status paves the way for the group to receive tax deductible donations.

The building is currently located in its original place along Highway C. It is now part of Bristol Woods County Park. The building currently has no electrical service and no adjacent parking. It is used by the county for storage.
