Brighton's Victorian SilhouettesDuke was raised to provide beef. Herefords are brown and white and could be found in the 1870s. Sometimes cattle and cows were found in the Old Village Cemetery eating grass. These animals apparently left the safety of their pen in search of food. During this period cemeteries had tall grass. The Brighton Argus in the late 1800s published several articles urging the owners of the animals to take better care of securing them and to help keep the streets clean. Animals found in the streets or the cemeteries were taken to the impoundment lot located at the north east corner of St. Paul St. and Grand River Ave. The owners of the animals would have to pay to get their animals released.
