43 miles from Cincinnati, Brooksville sits at the center of Bracken County. As Bracken’s county seat, the village began as the settlement Woodward's Crossroads in the late 1700s. The county seat was moved from nearby Augusta in 1839, and the town was renamed Brookville after legislator David Brooks. A post office opened in 1842, later changing the village’s name to Brooksville. The town itself is less than a mile wide but its packed full of everything county residents need from banks, to hardware and insurance companies. Just over 600 people call this home ensuring that there’s plenty of room to call your own. This is primarily a farming community, and Brooksville is where social, political and entertainment needs are met. Housing ranges from farmhouses to turn of the century construction.
