Brookfield CT Town Travel Business Information

Welcome to historic Brookfield, Connecticut. Fairfield Connecticut Region MapBrookfield in the 1700s was an area of rich farmlands, forests filled with game and streams abundant with fish. This area was called Newbury, a name derived from the three towns from which its land was taken ( New Milford, Newtown, and Danbury). Here lived a hardy breed of people. They believed in hard work six days a week, and on the Sabbath, they rested and attended worship, even though it meant an arduous ten-mile trip to either New Milford, Danbury, or Newtown.

Because of the hardship of traveling in winter, 1752 saw the introduction of winter church privileges. Worship was permitted in the homes from September through March. In 1754, the General Assembly finally granted the petition for the Parish of Newbury to build their own meeting house and call their own minister. On September 28, 1757, the first Congregational Church building was dedicated, and the Reverend Thomas Brooks was ordained as the first settled minister. In 1778 the Town was incorporated; the name Newbury was changed to Brookfield in honor of the Reverend Thomas Brooks who was still the minister. The first town meeting was held on June 9, 1788.
