The location of Brooklyn













Welcome to Brooklyn ...

So far, we have found very little information about Brooklyn. The little that we've found leads us believe that the community is historic.<1>

We've added Brooklyn to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Brooklyn - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Brooklyn, please Contact Us.


While we don't have the exact location of Brooklyn, we believe that it would have been located within present day Shelby County.

When the people of Brooklyn referred to themselves (known as a demonym), they are believed to have used Brooklynite<2>

Time Zone: The area where Brooklyn was located is in the Central Time Zone (CST/CDT) and observes daylight saving time

Brooklyn would have been located in the (936) area code.

Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Brooklyn, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.

- Return to Citation

<2>A demonym is the name for a resident of a community which is usually derived from (or is related to) the name of that community. In other words, it's how the residents of Brooklyn refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a community's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Brooklyn may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
