La Collina in Brandon
Brandon is located just east of Tampa and is less than a half hour drive from the city. The town’s inception began in 1858 when John Brandon purchased 200 acres in an area then known as New Hope. He changed the name to Brandon and donated land to build the New Hope Church about 4 years after settling in the region. The church also served as the first school. In 1890, railroad lines were extended through Brandon and a train depot was erected. The town grew in fits and starts until the Great Depression when several chicken farms were closed, putting many residents out of work. In the late 1940’s, a large egg farm was established that served most of Hillsborough County. More people moved in to work in the large orange packing houses in nearby Valrico. The town of Brandon continued its fast growth through the 1960’s until today as commuters discovered the easy access to Tampa and to other areas served by I-75. Today Brandon is a fully established town with many new schools, restaurants and shopping centers, including the Brandon Town Center mall.
