Brooksville, Florida


Located few miles east of Spring Hill, Brooksville is a city in Hernando County, for which it serves as the county seat. It lies about an hour north of Tampa along the so-called Nature Coast in Florida. The geographic center of the state is positioned approximately 12 miles away from here. Brooksville is part of the Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater Metropolitan Statistical Area. Once referred to as the "Home of the Tangerine," the suburban city used to be a major citrus producer in the region.


Settlers arrived at the present location of Brooksville after being forced by lack of potable water to leave Fort DeSoto, a military fort built for protection from attacks by Native Americans. Some moved further south and created a community known as Pierceville. Another community named Melendez was formed northwest of Pierceville. Both of these towns were combined to create the new town of Brooksville, which became the county seat of Hernando County in 1856. But the name of the Pierceville post office was not changed until 1871. The town was named after South Carolina statesman Preston Brooks, who is reputed for the brutal caning of abolitionist Senator Charles Sumner on the floor of the Senate in 1856. The City of Brooksville was incorporated in October 1880.


The growth of this city has been rather slow, but it has been fair steady nevertheless. The population has risen from just about 1,000 in 1920 to around 8,000 today. A 2015 census estimate put the total number of residents at 7,854. As of U.S. Census of 2010, almost half of the population was 45 years or older, with the median age of city inhabitants put at 44 years. Notable people from here include former Florida Governor William Sherman Jennings, former American Congressman and Florida Attorney General Bill McCollum, NFL defensive tackle Jerome Brown and Cincinnati Reds pitcher Bronson Arroyo.
