Brookville History

Warren Estabrook established a general store in 1832, which led to the formation of a community.

Rail construction had begun by 1848, and soon after, housing developments and businesses began to grow and prosper. Jacob Frees surveyed and platted the land on April 13, 1850, and The Dayton and Greenville Railroad Company officially opened in June, 1852. A post office was established in 1855, and the village of Brookville was incorporated on September 9, 1874. The city charter for Brookville became effective on January 1, 1979.
