Trying to save a sweet piece of Brighton history

BRIGHTON – The Great Western Sugar Co. factory has been named one of the state’s “Most Endangered Places” this year by Colorado Preservation Inc.

The site on north Main Street was chosen because of its historical importance to residents of Colorado, said Robin Kring, a historian and a member of the Brighton Historic Preservation Commission. Sugar beets in Colorado were known as “white gold,” because the industry brought in more money in its heyday than silver mining did.
