About Brighton
map
The area of Brighton was established in the late 17th century and was first known as "Little Cambridge". The residents acquired legal separation from Cambridge in 1807 and officially named the town Brighton. The town was then officially annexed to the City of Boston in 1874 and it remains a part of Boston today.

In post colonial days Brighton was home to agricultural plots and stockyards, but with the extension of the street car lines in the 1800s came residential growth. Soon houses and apartments were built all across the neighborhoods.

Brighton is primarily populated by graduate students and young professionals. Along Washington Street you will find small family businesses and Saint Elizabeth's Hospital - reputed as one of the finest hospitals in the northeast.

Brighton is host to the Bryman Institute, Saint John's Seminary and part of Boston College. Nearby you will find some of the finest institutes of higher learning in the country including Boston University, Harvard University and MIT.

Christmas Traditions: A Slide Lecture with Anthony Sammarco

Renowned historian, Anthony Sammarco will speak about how Christmas has been celebrated since the Puritans settled in Boston in 1630.
Having been banned by the Puritans, it was not until the 18th century that Christmas began to be observed with wassail and greens used to bedeck houses. The 19th century saw the beginning of the Victorian extravaganzas of old Saint Nicholas with huge decorated trees, choral groups, handbell ringers and lavish gift giving, all in the name of Christmas....the birth of Jesus Christ in a stable in Bethlehem. This lavishly illustrated slide lecture
recounts how we as Americans interpret and celebrate this religious holiday. All are welcome. Light refreshments will be served. The program is sponsored by the Friends of the Brighton Library.
