The Civil War In Levy County

Levy County Historical Society

     Levy County, the 27th Florida County, was formed on March 10, 1845, one week after Florida gained statehood on March 3, 1845.  The county was named for David Levy Yulee, a territorial delegate to Congress prior to Florida statehood and one of Florida's first U.S. Senators.

     The incorporated communities in Levy County include Bronson, Cedar Key, Chiefland, Fanning Springs, Inglis, Otter Creek, Williston, and Yankeetown.  The first county seat was located at Levyville, but was relocated to Bronson in 1869.
