     History
    Built in 1951, and opening in 1952, Brookfield Air Force Station served as part of the Air Defense Command. It was initially equipped with AN/FPS-3 AN/FPS-5 radars, and housed the 662nd Air Control & Watch Squadron.

    When the site closed in 1959 due to budgetary concerns, the 662nd was transferred to Oakdale AFS in Oakdale, PA, and the property become the Trumbull County Nursing Home, closing in the 1980's, again due to budget.

    The property now hosts a radio transmitter for WTNX.


    The site was used for police training in the past, and also reportedly the site of a UFO sighting in 1994.
