The town is named for Wilmot Wood Brookings who was part of the Western Town Company, and oversaw construction of a road running from the Minnesota border, through present-day Brookings County, to the shores of the Missouri River.
Medary, the first substantive settlement constructed in the area, was organized in 1857. The location was among the first three non-native settlements in Dakota Territory. The City of Brookings formed just over four miles north of the Medary settlement when the railroad bypassed the existing townships (Medary, Oakwood, and Fountain), favoring a path between them as a compromise.
