Bristol Industrial Historic District is a national historic district located at Bristol, Bucks County, Pennsylvania. It encompasses nine contributing buildings in a wholly industrial area of Bristol. It includes the Keystone Mill (1877, 1903), Star Mill (1880), Wilson & Fenimore Walpaper Factory (1882), and Peirce and William Planing Mill (1891). The district includes the separately listed Grundy Mill Complex and formerly listed Bristol Carpet Mills. A number of the buildings were constructed by the Bristol Improvement Company between 1876 and 1885.[2]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.[1]
