The Town of Bronson is the county seat of Levy County, and referred to as the “Heart of Levy County”. Originally known as “Chunky Pond”, it was founded by James C. Bronson in 1839. Bronson was a friend of David Levy Yulee, an early United States senator for whom Levy County is named, and who is credited with first bringing the railroad to west Florida. The railroad, which ran from Fernando Beach to Cedar Key passed through the Town of Bronson.

The original settlement of Bronson consisted of a saw mill and trading post. Logging was a big industry in the area, as was the growing of citrus. The area around Bronson reportedly had about 75 different orange groves. In the early years, Bronson was a crossroads town, and an important stop along the route of the railroad. But as the land began to be logged out, and the hard freezes in the 1890s destroyed the orange groves. Levy County provides Bronson with a local library branch. The Bronson Public Library was built by the Felburn Foundation founder; J. Phil Felburn. The Levy County Public Library System is a member of PAL (Putnam, Alachua and Levy County Public Library Cooperative)
