Description: The photographs in the Brighton town historian’s office belong to a collection of records pertaining to the town’s history as an agricultural, manufacturing, and residential community. Because of the many annexations of Brighton land by the City of Rochester, many of the photos depict areas no longer within the current boundaries of the town.

Physical Access to the Collection: The collection is housed in the Historian’s Office, Brighton Town Hall, 2300 Elmwood Avenue, and may be viewed by appointment.

Printing Images for Educational or Personal Use: The credit line “Town of Brighton” must accompany any image printed from this collection. Images may be printed for personal, educational, or research use only.
