Membership in Historic Brighton
Historic Brighton, a private, not-for-profit organization was founded in 1999 with the support of the Landmark Society of Western New York. Its mission is to bring the town’s history and related information to our community through lectures, research and publications. In 2009, Historic Brighton earned its Permanent Absolute Charter from the State of New York.
As a member, you will receive our acclaimed and informative Historic Brighton News with interesting articles about Brighton’s past and present, along with information about upcoming events. Published four times a year, recent issues have focused on significant local architects and their work, interesting past residents such as Walter Hagen and Dr. Howard Hanson, the 19th century diaries of a local farmer, and many of Brighton’s wonderful neighborhoods.
Programs have focused on local architecture and architects, historic preservation, local treasures such as Corbett’s Glen and the Lost City of Tryon, the history of East Avenue, local historic gardens and many more interesting topics. In 2014, we celebrated Brighton’s Bicentennial with several successful events in association with the Town of Brighton.
We look forward to having you help us share Brighton’s rich history!
