About this Location

The Brooks Estate was first settled in about 1660 and was transformed into a Victorian summer retreat by Peter Chardon and Shepherd Brooks. It is graced by two fine Victorian buildings: the Shepherd Brooks Manor and Carriage House (1880), both slated for adaptive reuse as community assets.

The Brooks Estate offers acres of open space, walking trails, Brooks Pond, and a unique historic landscape. It also has critical habitats for birds and small mammals. Visitors are welcome to walk the paths and enjoy the quiet and beautiful outdoors.
