Brookfield is a town located in Central New Hampshire, in the Lakes Region of the state. It is situated in the Southeastern area of Carroll County and, as of the 2010 U.S. Census, is home 712 people. The town encompasses a total area of 23.3 square miles, 22.9 of which is land and .4 of which is water. About 31 people live in each square mile of land in Brookfield.
The area that comprises Brookfield was first settled in 1726 by Scottish-Irish immigrants. At that time, it was known as Coleraine and was particularly popular with farmers, thanks to its highly fertile ground. In later years, it was renamed Brookfield, in honor of Brookfield, Massachusetts and combined to become a part of nearby Middleton. It wasn?t until 1794 the Brookfield was broken off from Middleton and once again independent. It was then incorporated and, in 1840, named a part of Carroll County.
