NEW BRIGHTON, a city formerly part of Mounds View Township, incorporated as a village on November 20, 1890, having stockyards and meat-packing business, was named for Brighton, Mass., which formerly was an important cattle market with abattoirs, now a suburban district of Boston. The post office was at Mounds View earlier and then here from 1889, with William L. Marston, postmaster; the post office consolidated with St. Paul in 1950. The city was the site of the first owner-occupied townhouse complex in the state, Windsor Green, begun in 1964.
