Escorted Bus Tour of
BRIGHTON’S DESIGNATED LANDMARKS
In continuation of its year-long bicentennial celebration, the TOWN OF BRIGHTON will team up with HISTORIC BRIGHTON on Sunday, May 4, 2014 to celebrate the town’s architectural history with three 90-minute escorted bus tours of the Town’s fifty-eight designated landmarks which date from 1792 to 1957. They include many of the popular architectural styles from the late-18th to the mid-20th century: Federal, Greek Revival, and Italianate among them.
Brighton Town Historian, Mary Jo Lanphear, Architectural Historian, Arlene Wright Vanderlinde of Historic Brighton, and Preservation Architect, Christopher Brandt, also of Historic Brighton, will lead you on your journey into the past by narrating these tours highlighting the town’s structures which have achieved official landmark designation by the Town of Brighton. Brighton’s Preservation Ordinance was enacted in 1995. At the end of each tour, attendees will receive a special souvenir booklet containing data and photos of each of the town landmarks.
The three tours will begin at 11:30 AM, 1:30 PM and 3:30 PM. Tour goers will ride in comfort for their 90-minute journey highlighting the fascinating architectural story of the Town of Brighton. This event is being generously underwritten by Reed Eye Associates.
