History of Brooklyn Park
The area where Brooklyn Park stands was used to be Missouri Territory back in the 19th century due to a treaty with the Dakota Tribe. In 1852, early settlers came in after the Federal government allowed them. In that same year, Brooklyn Township was enacted into law. Settlers from Michigan officially named the area as Brooklyn Township in 1853-54 in reference to their previous home of Brooklyn, Michigan. The first school was established in 1854, incorporation into a village happened in 1954 and charter cityhood established in 1969.
