New exhibit opening at Brighton City Museum

New exhibit

The Brighton City Museum is getting ready to open its doors and show off its new exhibit: "Brighton 1859-1977: An American Story." This free museum is located inside Historic City Hall, 22 S. 4th Ave. 


Most of the artifacts for this exhibit came from the museum's permanent collection and were purposefully selected to highlight Brighton’s history from the time of the first settlers to the closing of the Great Western Sugar Factory in 1977. 


“By focusing on some of Brighton's bigger historical themes like railroad history, farming and ranching history, and factory history, we sought to develop a story that many Brightonians can connect with; a truly American story,” Historic Preservation Coordinator Kim Bauer said. 


This exhibit opens to the public Friday, Jan. 25th and people are welcome to walk through the museum Tuesday-Friday from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
