Brookville was a cow town that got its start in 1867 after the railroad reached this area.  The town grew quickly as a major cattle shipping point.  Numerous businesses that once thrived were 3 hotels, saloons, furniture store, drug store, elevator, livery stable and 2 lumber yards.  Today there is a junior/senior high school, numerous churches, and a saloon.  The famous Brookville Hotel Restaurant has since relocated to Abilene, KS it is  worth a stop for one of their chicken dinners!
