Historic landmark spanning the state line declaring Bristol "A Good Place to Live." Listed on the National Register of Historic Places. One of the most unique landmarks in the South, the Bristol sign was built in 1910, donated by the Bristol Gas & Electric Company and placed on a hardware building. In 1915, it moved to its current location on the state line between Tennessee and Virginia. Six years later, a contest was held to change the original sign phrase “Push! - That’s Bristol” and “A Good Place To Live” was chosen. It is one of only 33 signs in the nation with the National Historic Register distinction.
