The picturesque town of Brooklyn covers roughly 29 square miles in the center of Windham County.
Brooklyn's economic base was once comprised mainly of thriving farms and this lead to the formation an Agricultural Association in 1820. Simultaneously, prosperous textile manufacturers were being built along many of the streams in town. In areas like West Wauregan and East Brooklyn, the textile industry dominated the economy. The grand 18th century homes still in town are a symbol of the community’s rich early roots.
Using careful planning, the town is putting forth a grand fight to preserve its quaint colonial feeling. Running right through Brooklyn Center is a Connecticut State Scenic Road and Route 169, a National Scenic Byway. Driving along this road, one is rewarded with breathtaking views of bountiful orchards, fields, lush forests and classic colonial homes.
The community still hosts many active farms. As a result of this rich agricultural heritage, Brooklyn is home to the longest continuously operating agricultural fair in the country; the Brooklyn Fair is held in town every autumn.
There are two public schools right in town, one serving students through grade 4 and another through grades 5-8. High school students are given the choice to attend Killingly High, Woodstock Academy or any high school in one several neighboring communities.

The educational climate index chart is based on the U.S. Census Bureau’s Socioeconomic Status (SES) measure. Factors in this measure are income, educational achievement and occupation of persons within a ZIP code. Because this measure is based on the population of an entire ZIP code, it may not reflect the nature of an individual school.
