Neither Bob Bradford or any of his contemporaries would recognize Bradfordville today. The village was never incorporated and it has so far escaped annexation by the city of Tallahassee, but that hasn't kept the area from being developed. The Cairo Road has become Thomasville Road, a multi-lane behemoth also known as US 319. Killearn Lakes is just the largest of the subdivisions in the Bradfordville area. Commercial development includes the Bradfordville Center and Bannerman Crossing. The Bradford family cemetery is still in the village, but it's no longer a prominent landmark. It's a challenge to find it nowadays.
From the late 1880s to 1930 the children of Bradfordville were served by a one-room schoolhouse. The schoolhouse is still standing, but education in the area is handled at much larger structures, most prominently Chiles High School, attended by nearly 2,000 students on the north side of Bradfordville. On Saturday morning, 19 November 2016, Chiles High hosted the fifth annual March Of Dimes 5K.
Jason Graham won the 3.1-mile race in 19:57. Tyler Carver, a seventh-grader on the cross-country team at Deerlake Middle School, took second in 21:55.
School librarian Lyssa Oberkreser was the first woman and fastest master runner in the race, coming in third overall in 22:44. Caroline Cummings, a seventh-grader on the Montford Middle School cross-country team, was second in the women's standings and fourth overall in 23:08.
Master runner Jamie Carver was the top male master in the race, placing fifth overall in 23:28.
