Survey looking into history of commercial properties in Brighton now complete

Historic Downtown

Together, the City of Brighton’s Historic Preservation Commission and Autobee & Autobee, LLC have completed Phase II of the Brighton Subdivision Historic Resource Survey. This survey was created to record the history and architectural styles of residential and commercial properties in the Brighton Subdivision (that triangular area south of Bridge Street, between the railroad tracks and South Main Street).   

Historic Preservation Planner Kim Bauer says this survey was a crucial part in understanding more about Brighton’s past.

“Results from the recent surveys will help broaden the history told for some of the oldest areas of our city,” Bauer said. “We hope that these research surveys and their histories will help facilitate resident and community engagement for Brighton’s past as told through our buildings.”

Bauer says the Historic Preservation Office is excited to have this survey now complete and it wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work that Kris Autobee from Autobee & Autobee, LLC put into this survey. 

The Brighton Subdivision Historic Resource Survey was funded by the Colorado State Historic Fund (Grant Number: 2018-M1-004) and the National Park Service (Grant Number: CO-17-013) with additional funding provided by the City of Brighton.
