Read All About It: Over the past fifteen years, the BHPC has received numerous publications ranging in date from 1894 to 2015 including the Japanese newspaper collection found under the floors at the Bromley Koizuma-Hishinuma Farm.  Additionally, we have recently obtained the Metro West Newspaper Collection that includes the Brighton Blade, the Fort Lupton Press, and the Adams County Republican.  We created an exhibit that reflects our collections and demonstrates the changes Brighton has experienced over the years.
