Just minutes away from the Twin Cities, Brooklyn Center real estate is in high demand. This city is home to one of the largest shopping centers in the upper Midwest, a 28 acre golf course and some of Minnesota’s best parks!
The first families officially settled in Brooklyn Center in 1852. For decades, the town functioned as a market gardening hub for the area, providing Twin Cities inhabitants with fresh crops to suit all their needs. The secret meeting that planned the official birth of Brooklyn Center was held in sheriff Earle Brown’s garage, and the city received approval to incorporate shortly after. Brown was also the founder of the Minnesota State Patrol and the first sheriff of Hennepin County. Many ears later, Brooklyn Center became a ‘bedroom city’ and industrial job center after the conclusion of the second World War. In the years since, Brooklyn Center has become a notable suburb of the Twin Cities.
