Bronson, an incorporated city in the western part of Bourbon county, is a station on the Missouri Pacific R. R. about half-way between Fort Scott and Iola. It has 2 banks, an international money order postoffice with four rural routes, express and telegraph offices, telephone connections, a semi-weekly newspaper (the Bronson Pilot), a large retail trade, good public schools, etc., and in 1910 reported a population of 595. The city was settled in 1885 by G. H. Requa, J. W. Timmons and a few others, and was named for Ira D. Bronson of Fort Scott. Requa and Martin opened the first store in Sept., 1881, and the same month the postoffice was established with Mr. Requa as postmaster. The growth of Bronson has been slow but substantial, and it is the principal shipping and supply point for a rich agricultural district.
