Brockville was originally part of Nassagaweya Township a once thriving rural township in Halton Region. (Nassagaweya amalgamated with the Town of Milton in 1974) The name of this former township was a First Nations word meaning “river with two outlets” referring to the local watershed of streams and creeks that criss-cross the area.
Brookville a hamlet within Nassagaweya was first settled in 1831 by Elias and Joan Easterbrook who emigrated to Canada from England. The Brookville name was an adaptation of the Easterbrook surname. Their son Thomas Easterbrook built a general store and hotel literally putting Brookville on the map. Thomas Easterbrook served the hamlet as postmaster for many years.
By the late 1800s, Brookville had erected a Town Hall. The division courts for Halton Region were held here. Brookville was a social rub for this rural farming community as it hosted the annual Nassagaweya Fall Show attended by all the families in the township. In the early 2000s, Brookville entered a new era with the development of Churchill Estates, a luxury new home development that has once again put this community on the map.
Brookville is a small hamlet situated in rural Milton. There is no official main street just a stone marker in a farm field off Guelph Line with the name Brookville inscribed in a stylized mauve-colored lettering together with an arrangement of bull rush flowers. Brookville is small but it does have a country general store and a specialty meat shop and an organic farm. There is also a public school and a park with a baseball diamond. Brookville is situated in escarpment country surrounded by nature, There are a fair number of horse farms in this area as the expansive green hills of this countryside provide the ideal habitat for these beautiful animals to graze and exercise. Brookville contains some magnificent estate homes in the Churchill Estates subdivision.
This is country personified with horse farms all around. And where there are horse farms you can usually find estate homes on multi-acreage properties and that in a snapshot is Brookville.
Brookville is in northwest Milton, surrounded by farmland. The community was originally called “Nassagaweya.” In 2000, a housing project, Churchill Estates, began construction in Brookville, featuring large, estate homes on large lots. Brookville Park, for baseball and other sports, was built in 1974, and was expanded in 2008.

The concept of a high school in Acton can be traced back as far as 1927 when an old stone building on what is now School Lane near Robert Little Public School served as a continuation school and high school. A rapid increase in the school population saw a new building open as the high school on Acton Boulevard in 1954. This is now McKenzie-Smith Bennett School. Various additions were made to the school in 1955, 1959, and 1972. The present high school, on 21 Cedar Road, was officially opened on November 29, 1977, and the former building on Acton Boulevard became a middle school now amalgamated with M.Z. Bennett.
Our school motto is the Latin ‘Lux sit’ which means, ‘Let there be light.’ This we believe is the purpose of education. At Acton High School, with the support of our parents and the wider community, we hope to offer our students a wide range of academic, athletic, artistic, and social opportunities.
