Brentwood is known as the “City of Warmth” to residents because of its small town charm and friendly atmosphere.
In the 1870s a man by the name of Thomas Madden arrived and soon became the businessman of the community. He operated a rock quarry, and constructed a tavern, a barbershop, a grocery store, and a blacksmith shop. Due to Madden's prominence in the community the town was then named Maddenville. On December 15, 1919, the town of Maddenville officially became the village of Brentwood.
As of the census of 2010, there were 8,055 people living in this gorgeous community.
Brentwood is home to Brentwood High School, a 2006 National Blue Ribbon Award winner, and Mark Twain Elementary School, a 2009 National Blue Ribbon Award winner.
