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.
