New Brighton 

New Brighton flourished with the founding of the Minneapolis Stockyards and Packing Company in 1888. The company was formed to supply home needs and to claim a share of the growing trade. Leaders in the venture were such prominent Minneapolis figures as streetcar magnate Thomas Lowry, flour millers J.S. Pillsbury, and Senator J.D. Washburn, ex-Minneapolis Mayor W.H. Eustis and industrialist W.O. Dunwoody. Around the same time, New Brighton, not yet officially a city, was given a name by the predominately English founders. The city was named after Brighton, Massachusetts, a cattle center serving the Boston area, which in turn was most likely named after the famed Brighton, England resort city. With the industry booming, hotels, houses and other needs of a bustling town emerged. Following the building of the stockyards and packing plants, numerous hotels were established. When the Village of New Brighton was incorporated in 1891, fourteen passengers trains passed daily. The first newspaper established was the Twin City Livestock Reporter, a daily newspaper housed at the Cattleman's Hotel. Ticker services allowed the paper and cattle industry to maintain contact with Boston, Chicago, and Kansas City cattle centers. A downturn in the economy, a series of suspicious fires and competition from South St. Paul led to the demise of the cattle industry in New Brighton. The community later turned to farming for it livelihood. New Brighton is now a well-established first ring suburb of Minneapolis/St. Paul and is ideal for families wishing for the amenities of a suburb, such as shopping malls and larger houses, but still close (with easy access!) to both Minneapolis and St. Paul.
