You've found the website of the Brookfield Township Historical Society, in Brookfield, Ohio. 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 on the Township Green of two historical markers commemorating the Township's history and its role as an Underground Railroad stop.
A history timeline is being created on the wall of the meeting room at the Administration Building.  

Presently, we meet on the second Thursday of the month at 7 pm at the Briceland Funeral Home, 379 State Route 7 SE.  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.
