Our History

Dedicated in 1953, Middlebrook Elementary School was named to honor a Trumbull Revolutionary War hero, Lt. Ephraim Middlebrook.  During the time of the American Revolution, Lt. Middlebrook served under General George Washington at the siege in New York in 1776.  In April 1777, while under the leadership of General Benedict Arnold, Middlebrook was killed at the Battle of Ridgefield.  We are thankful to the 1953 building committee who chose our name to honor this American hero.
