Description:
The new image shows Main Street paved and widened. The sidewalks have been removed and traffic signs have been added to the right side of the street. The margins of the street are now used to park cars. The building on the left side of the street may be the same building as in the historic image (see below for commentary on the buildings use). There are fewer houses and fewer trees along Main Street in the recent image. Phil Bullis writes..." In the photo dated 7/6/2000 the three story white building on the left was once used as a dormitory for students attending Brigham Academy. The school building still exists. It is out of sight behind the three-story building. My parents both were students at Brigham around 1930.
