All About Bloomingdale, FL

Around 1850, Bloomingdale was settled by John Carney and John Vickers, among others. The community had a rocky beginning, with John Carney becoming a casualty of the Third Seminole War in 1856. The Bloomingdale School was first founded in 1884, and it became a teacher’s institute thirteen years later, training over fifty teachers at a time from places like Gainesville to the north and Dade County to the south.


A railway was routed through Brandon in 1890, which drew a lot of business away from Bloomingdale. Businessmen like D.J. Galvin, owner of a feed store where Mulrennan Middle School now stands, left to benefit from the railroad. The post office closed in 1910, and the school followed in 1920, students going to Brandon instead, though today, high school students attend Bloomingdale High School. Bloomingdale has been a bedroom community for Tampa since the ‘60s.
