It is a wealthy and well-educated community when compared to both state and national economic and educational statistics. Nearly 40% of adults over the age of 25 hold four-year degrees or higher making it easier for many residents of the community to earn higher pay.

The Brighton Michigan settlement was established in 1832, incorporated as a village in 1867 and lastly incorporated as a city in 1928. Growth was slow but fairly steady for many years. In more recent years, efforts to revitalize downtown have been well-received and continually supported. Over the years Brighton has been home to a number of notable people, including quarterback Drew Henson, center fielder Mickey Stanley and cornerback Morgan Trent. Today it is a thriving community with a mixed job market and workforce featuring both blue and white collar positions.
