Brookings is a city located in Curry County, Oregon. It was named after John E. Brookings, president of the Brookings Lumber and Box Company, which founded the city in 1908. As of the 2000 census, the city had a total population of 5,447.
Due to its location Brookings is the warmest part of Oregon, where temperatures can reach 70 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit (21 to 27 degrees Celsius) throughout the year. This is due in part to the marine influences from its location on the Pacific Ocean, but mostly from its situation at the foot of the Klamath Mountains, whose winds compress and warm the area flowing onto Brookings.
