History of Bronson-Mulholland House

  • House was constructed as the home for US Congressman Judge Isaac Bronson in 1854.
  • While a congressman, he introduced legislation that made Florida a state, sponsored the charter for the City of Palatka and proposed it as the county seat.
  • The attic of the house was used by Confederate soldiers as a lookout when Union forces were approaching on the river during the Civil War, in which the Union troops eventually occupied the building.
  • The house was also the site for a school for freed slave children after the War.
  • The house was added to the U.S. National Register of Historic Places on 27 December 1972.
