The town of Brookfield is centrally located south of Montpelier, and is the site of the famous Floating Bridge and Vermont's first library.

Sunset Lake is crossed by a floating bridge, buoyed by 380 barrels, (the lake is too deep to support a pillared span). The lake is the site of much fishing off the bridge and in January it is a coveted viewing point for one of New England's last remaining ice harvest festivals.
