Brookville was first settled in 1790 by two brothers; Joseph and Andrew Barnett and their brother-in-law. The town was named Port Barnett and was located at the confluence of the Sandy Lick and Mill Creeks. Lumber has been a mainstay of the economy for most of its existance. Of note is the fact that Twyford Motors, which manufactured the world's first 4 wheel drive vehicle was located here. Today Brookville is still thriving pretty well and has grown to over 4000 people. It is located about 100 miles Northeast of Pittsburg and is just South of Interstate 80. It is the County Seat of Jefferson County and I like this courthouse.
The Jefferson County History Center is located in the historic center of town on Main Street. It houses a number of exhibits, facilities for research and other attractions relating to the history of Brookville and Jefferson County. The Center is organized by the Jefferson County Historical Society and is in the old N. G. Edelblute Building, which was built in the late 1800s.
Brookville has a nice historic District with several buildings of historic and/or architectural interest.
Brookville has a couple of nice monuments/memorials to veterans.
