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.

Ernie Chatman Field at Tom Varn Stadium Print

On Tuesday, February 21, 2017, the City of Brooksville, along with the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, honored Coach Ernie Chatman in a Field Dedication ceremony.  

Coach Chatman was stratetic, but bold; tough, but kind-hearted; stoic, but nurturing; and humble, but proud...a one-of-a-kind coach.

William "Ernie" Chatman coached in Hernando County for over 40 years.  At Hernando High School, his alma mater, he coached baseball, cross country, softball, track and field, and boy’s basketball, and served as athletic director.  Coach Chatman collected 21 conference, 18 district, 11 regional, and one state championship.  He coached the 1983 Dixie Majors to a World Series Championship, completed 104 marathons, at least one in all 50 states and Washington DC, held an 8,814 consecutive running streak and coached multiple athletes to professional careers. He was given the Key to the City of Brooksville in 2004, inducted into the Florida Athletic Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 2004 and the Hernando High School Sports Hall of Fame in 2011.  

At the age of 66, Coach Ernie Chatman passed away on July 24, 2016.
