A bit of Bradford History
The county was carved out of Columbia County December 21,
1858. It was given the name of New River at that time. On
December 6, 1861 the name was changed to Bradford for Civil War
Captain, Richard H. Bradford killed in the Battle of Santa Rosa Island
on October 9, 1861.
Starke is the county seat and is located about in
the center of the county on US Hwy 301. There are two other
cities Hampton andLawtey. Also there is one town, Brooker
located in Bradford.
