Welcome To Your Past

The Brighton Area Historical Society is your connection to local history. Our goal is to discover and learn about our history because we believe our past is worth preserving. If you share our passion for history, then you are in the right place. The BAHS is focused on the history of the greater Brighton Area and the surrounding townships of Livingston County, Michigan. We also operate the historic Lyon School house which has been fully restored and features an elementary school curriculum. Please take a moment and look around. Your history is here waiting to be discovered.
