Boston & Albany Railroad Stock Yard Receipt - Brighton MA 1889

In 1872, all slaughtering activities in Brighton MA were consolidated into a single facility, the Brighton Abattoir, situated on a 42 acre site on the banks of the Charles River.  The Abattoir closed in 1957 to make way for commercial property, the Leo M. Birmingham Parkway and Soldier's Field Road.

The stockyards had many sidings, and the Boston & Albany rail yards were close by.
