      The firm of Perry and Bishop worked on several prominent homes and commercial buildings in New Britain, along with the University of Connecticut administration building, dining hall, dormitories, staff apartment building, and Storrs Congregational Church.

      The firm's New Britain accomplishments include the Spanish War Memorial.
