Welcome to the City of Brooksville

City of Brooksville Seal

Steeped in history, Brooksville, Florida was founded in 1856.  In fact, some of our homes and structures are registered with the National Register of Historic Places and many date back to the 1800's.  And although we work hard to preserve and share our history, the City of Brooksville is progressive and is expanding to new areas.

Being a city within Florida's Adventure Coast, we have so much to offer, including downtown shops and eateries, biking and walking trails, local art and gorgeous family friendly parks for recreation. Whether a resident, business owner or visitor -- we hope you take full advantage of your time in Brooksville, explore some of our peaceful tree lined neighborhoods, tour our hand painted city murals, visit and learn more at our museums, dine at sumptuous restaurants and browse the unique local shops.

 

Zika Virus Hotline: Govenor Scott and the Florida's Surgeon General's office have activated a hotline available for information related to the Zika Virus at 855-622-6735.  You may also visit the website for more information.

2016 Great Brooksvillian Print

Lee Slayden Gordon

alt

This year our annual Great Brooksvillian Award Ceremony was held at City Hall on November 22, 2016.  This Award recognizes outstanding men and women who have made significant positive contributions to the history, culture and/or economy of our community.  The program, which officially began in 2002, was modeled after the State of Florida's "Great Floridian" program in 2000, where the City was honored to have six individuals from Brooksville bestowed this prestigious state historical designation:  John Law Ayers, James E. "Nick" Connor, Lena Culver Hawkins, May Mann Jennings, William Sherman Jennings, and Frank Elmore Saxon.

Lee Gordon was born in Brooksville on August 17, 1946.  She was a graduate of Hernando High School and returned there as a Choral Teacher after receiving her music degree from Florida Southern College in Lakeland. For over 30 years she served as the choir director at Evangelical Presbyterian Church.  At various times, she directed the choirs at both First Presbyterian Church and Faith Evangelical Presbyterian Church, and also taught private voice lessons.

During the lates 1960s, Lee, along with her sister Reville Johnson, produced several musicals held at the old Dixie Theater in downtown Brooksville.  Perhaps her most notable accomplishment was the establishment of the New Nostalgics, a popular vocal group that performed dinner theater concerts around the county from the late 1970s through the 1990s.

Known throughout the community for her dramatic and musical talents, Lee was more importantly known for her love of God. She was the proud mother of three children and raised them to follow her love of God.  Lee passed away in 2002 from Cancer and there is no number to show how many lives she touched while she was here. 

Lee Slayden Gordon had integrity, compassion, dirve, vision, faith, hope, honesty and she never gave up on anyone.  She was truly a "Great Brooksvillian", deserving the honor of being bestowed the 2016 Great Brooksvillian Award.
