WELCOME TO HISTORIC BRIGHTON

Historic Brighton is a Not-for-Profit Organization.

The town of Brighton, NY was established in 1814. It is situated in the County of Monroe, abutting Lake Ontario in upstate New York. It was shaped by the Wisconsin Glacier until 8,000 BC and is now divided by the Genesee River. Brighton, a suburb of Rochester, was a Seneca Indian hunting ground before becoming an Erie Canal Village in 1823. With a robust nursery & farming community, Brighton became the brick industry capital of upstate New York in the 1800’s. There are still many well preserved 19th century brick homes within the town. Brighton’s 1792 Stone Tolan House is the oldest landmark in Monroe County. We invite you to share in the celebration of Brighton’s rich history.
