With it's many large oaks and other hardwoods, beautiful Brookhaven truly belongs in the City of Oaks. Even after the devastation of Hurricane Fran in 1996, many yards are graced with towering trees with plenty of shade in summer, and leaves in autumn! Often, it's hard to believe this quiet neighborhood is located between vibrant northwest Glenwood Avenue and West Millbrook Road, within walking distance of Crabtree Valley Mall.

Note: The map on this page is a rough approximation. There is also a newer section of Brookhaven north of West Millbrook Rd.

Entrance at Glenwood Ave. and Brookhaven Dr.
