The Bush Hill Historic District is a historic district in Brooklyn, Connecticut along parts of Bush Hill Road, CT 169, and Wolf Den Road. It encompasses a rural agricultural area with a remarkable concentration of farmhouses and agricultural outbuildings dating to the early 19th century or earlier. The twenty houses that appear in the district are typically post-and-beam construction, with a large central chimney and a side-gable roof. Most of the properties are located on two ridges, one traversed by CT 169, and the other by Wolf Den Road, with Bush Hill Road providing a connection between them.[2]

The district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987.[1]
