Although much has changed there are places that have stayed
somewhat the same.

how East Brookfield and the surrounding area has changed or
in some cases changed very little.
once a month we will present an old photograph and ask our
visitors to identify the entire photograph, specific components
of the photograph or the event that took place at the time
of the photograph. Once identified, we will attempt to provide
a modern day picture, if possible, and add these to our expanding
your comments, historical facts and suggestions and we hope
