Brookefield of the Berrys is a historic house located at Croom, Prince George's County, Maryland, United States. It is a 2 12-story frame house begun about 1810 in the Federal style, and completed in 1840, in the Greek Revival style. The house was finished in 1840 by John Thomas Berry, a prominent plantation family in southern Prince George's County. Berry and his descendants lived at Brookefield from 1840 until 1976. This 19th-century farmstead is well represented by the complex of outbuildings surrounding the house.[2]

Brookefield of the Berrys was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.[1]
