Bristow Neighborhoods

There is no "downtown" or central gathering place in Bristow, but Linton Hall Road runs through the entire town and is a conduit to most retail establishments and HOAs. According to Wikipedia, most of Bristow was once part of the Linton's Ford Plantation, owned by the Linton Family. In the late 1800s, some of the parcel was sold to the Catholic Church which established Linton Hall School, and more recently to developers who began constructing town houses and single family homes in the late 1990's/early 2000's. Among the first of Bristow's HOAs was Braemar, which is by far the greatest in size and offers the most diversity in housing in Bristow. In Braemar, you can find an adult active community (55+), carriage homes, traditional town homes, and single family detached homes in all sizes. In New Bristow Village, one of the latest HOA's, houses have large front porches and are set close to the sidewalk to create a close sense of community. The HOA keeps a busy planning schedule here. A few of the past events have included: an annual summer kick-off party, Christmas parties, participation in National Night Out and outdoor concerts.
