Brookfield was founded in 1859 with the expansion of the Hannibal and St. Joseph Railroad. This enables Brookfield to be minutes from the hustle and bustle to the quite retreat of the peaceful countryside.

Brookfield is proud of its agricultural heritage, traditions, friendly neighbors, and the shining jewel of our community – our schools.

Although it is the largest town in Linn County, it’s still a small rural community with a population of around 4,400. Along with the benefits of small town living, there is so much to offer as a productive place to live, work and play.

There is an industrial park including Excelsior and Brookfield Fabricating, and Stanbury Uniforms. Outside the industrial park, you will find Walsworth Publishing Company, Apex Plastics, a newly renovated hospital, and several retail stores.

Transportation: Railroad, truck lines and an airport.

For the young and young at heart we offer the YMCA, Aquatic Center, Country Club Lake with golf course, Cinema 3, Bowling, and 11 beautiful parks. The Annual Balloon Derby includes hot air balloon competitions, vendors, and a parade.
