Brookfield, known also as Brookfield Hollow or Mink Hollow, is situated in the northwestern part of the township, about a half-mile from the New York State line and a mile east of Potter County. Brown Run, a branch of the North Fork, flows through the place, pursuing a slightly southwest course. When the settlers first came in the township, mink were found along this run, hence the name of Mink Hollow. The first settler on the site was John H. Brown, a Revolutionary soldier, who came about 1812. The Brookfield Hollow Union Cemetery Association was organized in 1879, the trustees being Andrew J. Simmons, Charles Stanburrough, I.P. Parker, John R. Coffin and John G. Bowman. This Cemetery, containing about four acres, is the old neighborhood burying ground and has the remains of many of the first settlers.
