Burr Farm

The Burr Farm Protected Open Space was purchased by the Town of Brookfield from the family of Lawrence and Helen Burr in 1999. It comprises 116 acres divided into East and West parcels, along the now unused eastern end of Lake George Road, which used to connect with Pond Brook Road in Newtown. Upon the death of Helen Burr in 1997, the land was sold to the Town of Brookfield so it could be saved from development and enjoyed by the likes of hikers, naturalists, horseback riders, cross country skiers, bird watchers and more.
