Description UTAH PRESS ASSOCIATION J. Cecil Alter in Early Utah Journalism. The Star proclaimed that "thousands of dollars have been expended (in Brighton) in artesian wells, parks, churches, schools, factories, stores, a theatre, pavilion, a newspaper plant, printing establishment and numerous residences costing from $500 to $10,000." Though the paper's flamboyant summation didn't mention it, an even more ambitious goal for Brighton was a plan to construct "Utah Normal College and Conservatory of Music." Needless to say, it was never realized. After the demise of the projected town and the consequent failure of both the Star, and later the Brigham City venture, "Milo Zip" moved to Denver where he became corresponding secretary of the Western Editorial Federation.

Holmes and then less than two years of age, was the city's leading hostelry. Advertisements proclaimed 75 of its 250 rooms had baths.
