Brookhaven is a rapidly growing small city in Southwest Mississippi with a population of over 12,000. That was a 26% increase over the 2000 Census. Brookhaven was founded in 1818 and was named after the hometown of one of its founders, Brookhaven, New York. Brookhaven is the county seat of Lincoln County.
There are several buildings in Brookhaven of historical and/or architectural interest. My favorite was probably the First Baptist Church.
