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.
