Brookfield Museum and Historical Society

165 Whisconier Road
Brookfield, CT 06804


In May 1788, by resolution of the Connecticut General Assembly, the Parish of Newbury was established from land taken from Newtown, New Milford and Danbury in 1752. The parish was given town status and renamed Brookfield. Over the next 200 plus years, the town has metamorphosed several times to become the friendly community we now enjoy so much.

The Brookfield Museum and Historical Society, founded in 1968, is the only organization in town whose purpose is to preserve our Town history. We believe that significant facts, documents and artifacts must be preserved, documented and made a part of our Town's permanent heritage. Thus the purpose of the Brookfield Museum and Historical Society is to collect the history of Brookfield and make it available, educational and interesting to all.

In May 2001, the Brookfield Museum and Historical Society went on-line in an attempt to reach out to our friends and neighbors using technology that we playfully imagine our founding fathers had envisioned for us.
