The Historic Town Of Brookfield In Connecticut
The area where Brookfield town now is was first settled in 1710 by colonial founders, Muirwood, Hawley, Peck, and Merwin. The town was founded several decades later, in 1788. Brookfield was named after the Reverend Thomas Brooks, the minister of the first Congregational Church in the parish. The town now has a population of approximately sixteen and a half thousand and has grown from being a small colonial town to being a popular destination for consumer goods and shopping. One of the attractions that have drawn people to the area is Candlewood Lake. The lake is 8.4 square miles in area and is bordered by five towns, including Brookfield. During the summer months many tourists travel to the lake for boating, fishing and golf. There are five star resorts, golf courses, beaches, and marinas along its banks. This popular and attractive area is represented by memorable horse statues on our colourful acrylic fridge magnet.
