Tammy Santos Brewer | Mapping a Modern MS

Monday, August 15, 2016

After spending the majority of her life in Brookhaven, Tammy Santos Brewer found a passion for the history of the area. One of the charter members of the Lincoln County Historical and Genealogical society, Santos Brewer helped establish a museum, and along with other historians, wrote a book to preserve the rich story of Brookhaven.

“Brookhaven has had a lot of forward thinkers, I believe… You know there’s a cliché—you don’t know where you’re going unless you know where you’ve been—I think that applies a lot of the time, especially to the people that are the forward thinkers or those who see the big picture. They’ve seen where Brookhaven has been; they know where they want Brookhaven to go. I think by putting all that together they see the potential that Brookhaven has.”- Tammy
