I grew up in Brookville, KS and was born there in 1934. I either did business at some of these stores, or worked at them. Used to freeze ice cream by hand for the Brookville Hotel, and my aunt was the cook there for many years. I attended school at the old rock schoolhouse and graduated from Brookville High School in 1952.( now El-Saline). I can answer most questions about the town since both my father and grandfather lived there all their lives.
