300th Anniversary of Brookfield Churches
The months of August and September will see a continuation of the 300th Anniversary celebration of the Brookfield Churches that trace their beginning to the meeting house that was built on Foster Hill in West Brookfield in 1717. Church celebrations will take place on August 19, September 17, and October 14.
Finally, October 14, 2017 will see a joint celebration by all the participating Churches, commemorating the 1717 installation of the first "settled" minister in the Brookfields. This "settling" of a full-time minister led the General Court in Boston to accept Brookfield as a township in 1718, and the first Brookfield town meeting took place at the meeting house on December 5th of that year. The event will begin at 10:00 A.M. at the Jedediah Foster Homesite on Foster Hill in West Brookfield.
