The Brookfield Gazette was first published on April 23, 1867 until January 20, 1927 when it merged with the Linn County Budget to form the Linn County Budget-Gazette. The Brookfield Gazette articles focused on local issues rather than national or international stories. The paper promoted the town of Brookfield as an economic hub of northern Missouri, “The prospects of Brookfield to day are brighter than those of any other town in North Missouri” and promoted the paper as the primary resource for agricultural, manufacturing, cultural, and general news.
