The Homestead Restaurant in Bristol, New Hampshire represents the original homestead of Benjamin Emmons. The large two-story frame house built by Emmons, circa 1788, is said to be the oldest house standing in the town of Bristol. Benjamin Emmons was a prominent man in his day. He was a revolutionary soldier from New Chester (now known as Bristol) and after the war was active in the militia. Here he kept a tavern and for the price of 12 cents you could have a bowl of porridge and chance to sleep on the floor. His descendants lived here for generations. Today the McDonough family opens its doors to offer the finest of today’s food and beverage and a glimpse at the past.
