Desserted Brighton, Missouri, Old Town

Good morning,

On and near the property owned by Bob's CNC (see yesterday's post) are buildings that were part of Brighton, Missouri, in the mid 1800's.
It was fascinating to walk among the buildings and wonder about the people who built and lived in this little town.
This is on the corner of Bob's property.  If you read carefully, the letters at the top are "Brighton Bank."
I did a little research on the history of Brighton...
 and found that the town was named for Brighton, Tennessee, where many of the original settlers originated.

How many stories do these buildings hold?  Fascinating!
