The New Brighton Area Historical Society
The City would like to thank the New Brighton Area Historical Society (NBAHS) for lending all photos found in the timeline above. The NBAHS was founded in 1980 when four residents realized the importance of preserving the city’s rich history. The Society celebrated its 36th Anniversary in April of 2016, at which time a program on New Brighton’s civic events was given by Wayne Searles and Fred Behrens, long-time New Brighton residents.
