The town of Brookfield is located in the Housatonic Valley region of Fairfield County near the New York Border. Incorporated in 1788, the town was formed from parts of New Milford, Danbury, and Newtown. Today, it is home to 16,500 residents who have the good fortune to live in the beautiful rolling hills of western Connecticut. The two largest lakes in Connecticut border the Town, Candlewood Lake to the west and Lake Lillinonah to the east.
Brookfield’s early industries rose up along the Still River concentrated in an area called the Iron Works District. Its iron furnaces, grist mills, cotton and carding mills, comb shops, lime kilns, and other small industries drove the town’s growth.
Brookfield today has an expanding commercial sector, and its western edge, where man-made Candlewood Lake is located, has seen increased residential growth.
Brookfield residents enjoy outstanding recreational facilities and spectacular scenery. The Town has a wide variety of home styles and values, excellent schools and a vibrant commercial district.
