Brief History

Brookline was chartered on November 30, 1794 by the Vermont Legislature. Brookline was created from the southern half of Athens and a small part of the western side of Putney. Subsequently a little piece of Newfane that lay east of West River was added. The name comes from Grassy Brook, which rises over the line in Athens at Lily Pond and flows in an almost straight line through Brookline from north to south. [1][2]
