You've found the website of the Brookfield Township Historical Society. Since February of 2004, we have worked on a rather small scale to establish this society, and we continue to look for new projects that serve the community. 

Past projects include

  • a driving tour of historical homes and buildings, presented to the Trumbull County Historical Society;
  • a book of photographs of the over 200 homes, buildings and sites that are 100 years old or older in the Township;
  • the creation of a museum collection, including donated books and clothing;
  • the documentation of tombstones in the old sections of the Township cemetery;
  • the acquisition of markers for eleven Revolutionary War soldiers' graves; and
  • the erection of an historical marker on the Township Green.

We are currently working on completing markers for the graves of the Township's Civil War veterans and have applied for an historical marker commemorating Brookfield's role in the Underground Railroad.  

Presently, we meet on the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 9:00 am in the Township Administration Building, but an evening schedule could be arranged if this would accommodate a majority.  We are still looking for a permanent home for our growing collections and we are open to new resources and new ideas.

Please join us!  A membership form is available here.
