Map of Brookfield, CT

Brookfield, Connecticut is a beautiful town in Fairfield County, in the foothills of Berkshire Mountains. In the 18th century, it was called Newbury, a name combination that derives from the three towns from which the land was taken- New Milford, Newtown and Danbury. The town was incorporated in 1778, and the name changed to Brookfield, honoring the first settled minister, Thomas Brooks. During the 18th and 19th century, the town of Brookfield was a powerful and busy manufacturing town. Because industry developed greatly along Still River the area was named Iron Works District. In that period the town was very successful and thriving with iron furnaces, sawmills, grist mills, carding and cotton mills, hat factories, and many others. Iron Works Aqueduct Company and the grist mill, which is now known as Brookfield Craft Center, are standing even today.
