A Town With Three Names
Located just south of Tampa, Bradenton was named after Dr. Joseph Braden who provided refuge for early settlers during the Seminole Wars.
Dr. Braden had relocated from Virginia to Florida soon after Florida was annexed by the United States and brought his Virginia slaves with him to run his sugar plantation.
Due to a spelling error when applying for a post office in the late 18th century, the town's name was originally spelled Braidentown. In 1886, the city of Braidentown was designated as the county seat of Desoto County. Once incorporated in 1903 and officials elected, one of their first pieces of business was to correct the spelling of its name to Bradentown (it took several years afterwards for the Postal Service to recognize the corrected name). It wasn't until decades later that a final name change was made dropping the "w" and making the official name Bradenton.
As with many rural towns in that period, Bradenton experienced a good deal of growth after railroad service was extended to it. That growth resulted in the construction of the Ninth Street Park during the "roaring 20's" which has let to Bradenton being a destination for spring training for Major League Baseball which continues to this day.
