New Brighton is nestled along the east bank of the Beaver River. The Constable brothers laid out the town's first lots in 1815. The surveyors then named the town New Brighton after their hometown on the southern coast of England. New Brighton Revisited is another entertaining look at the town's rich historical past. Citizens who were prominent in promoting the growth and prosperity of the town included Sen. Samuel White, Joseph T. Pugh, Francis Reader, and Daniel Corbus. Businesses such as Pioneer Twine Mills, Wisener and Bingham Carriage Factory, E.R. Boots Dry Goods, J.J. Snellenburg Clothiers, Bestwick Hardware, Martsolf Brothers Furniture Company, Pryde-Wynne Company, Locke's Service Stations, Morell's Pizza Shop, and Pullion's Paints and Supplies all helped to shape New Brighton's development into what it has become today. New Brighton Revisited takes a nostalgic journey into the town's sports history, dating back to 1896. The community has seen a revitalization in the past year, with new businesses moving into the historic downtown area.
