History & History Related Items

Brookfield history:

The earliest settlers of the area were of French descent which influence is still felt today. After the Northwest Territory of the US was established, more settlements were created and the area became more stable. In 1836, the future area of Brookfield became part of Milwaukee County in the new Territory of Wisconsin. The first actual settler is thought to be William Howe who claimed his land in 1820. More and more farmers came here to use the rich soil and soon a town began to form. The first school was built before 1840. When Waukesha County was created in 1846 the Town of Brookfield was included. As more residents after, particularly after World War II, the residents began to desire incorporation. Brookfield was formed from the Town of Brookfield in 1954.
The incorporation date of Brookfield: 14 August 1954
