The New Brighton History Center is located in Long Lake Regional Park. In 1982, Soo Line gave the Bulwer Junction Depot to New Brighton Historical Society; and in 1990, the building was moved to its current location in Long Lake Park, where it serves as History Center. Outside the building there is a restored caboose kids can explore seasonally.
The building is open on summer weekends.
