Brandon is a community in Hillsborough County, Florida. It is part of the Tampa–St. Petersburg–Clearwater Metropolitan Statistical Area. Brandon has a population of about 125,000 and is growing quickly, like most of the Tampa Bay area.
Brandon's history began on January 20, 1857, when John Brandon (1809–1886) arrived at Fort Brooke (now Tampa) from Mississippi with his first wife Martha (1813–1867) and six sons. At first he moved his family to what is now the Seffner area. Then in August 1858, John Brandon purchased 40 acres (160,000 m2) in the New Hope area (now Brandon) and 160 acres (0.65 km2) later on and then named his land "Brandon". John and his second wife Victoria's house was located on what would become the corner of Knights Avenue and Victoria Street. Four years later, the New Hope Church was built on land donated by Brandon. Besides being the first church in the community, it also served as Brandon's first school.
For home buyers, Brandon is a bustling, city-like community about 25 minutes from downtown Tampa. Homes there are still relatively inexpensive compared to other parts of Tampa but prices have been increasing as people push out further away from downtown. Brandon is in demand. For many, it is an affordable compromise to the high home prices you might find closer to downtown Tampa.
