Brookline is Ideally Located

Brookline has been one of the fastest growing towns in the state since the late 1970s. In 1960, Brookline’s population stood at 795 and recently reached 5,591.  Located in eastern Hillsborough county, Brookline has managed to retain many of the features of its rural past while benefiting from its close proximity to the shopping and employment opportunities afforded by adjacent Milford to the north and nearby Nashua to the east. Brookline is about thirty minutes from Manchester, NH and one hour from Boston.
