Known as the center of local trade in the former Brooklyn Township since 1873, the rural area farmed market gardening for the nearby growing population of Minneapolis. With fears the downtown city would continue annexation, the village of Brooklyn Center was established in 1911. The city of Brooklyn Center was incorporated in 1966. The city contains the site of the historic Earle Brown farm, home to Earle Brown, founder of the Minnesota State Patrol and first Sheriff of Hennepin County. The farm has been refurbished and now contains a bed and breakfast, event center, and various office spaces.

Brooklyn Park is home to attractions such as the Edinburgh Golf Course. Brooklyn Center is home to Eugene H. Hagel Arboretum.
