Brooklyn, Michigan - 49230


Brooklyn, Michigan

Brooklyn, Michigan





Brooklyn is located in the beautiful Irish Hills section of southeastern Jackson County. Situated between Lake Columbia and Vineyard Lake, headwaters of the River Raisin, this stately village features a town square-like setting with a cupola in its center, separating north and south bound traffic.

Brooklyn’s economic base is supported generally by local business and traffic from M-50 and M-124 which join just to the south.

Brooklyn was first settled in 1832 by the Rev. Calvin H Swain, a Baptist minister who moved here from Washington County, New York and built a sawmill, and calling it Swainsville. The name was changed to Brooklyn, after Brooklyn, New York, by popular vote in 1836.

It was officially organized as a village in 1879.
