Bradley was established in 1855. Some 26 years later, in 1881, the county line was moved east and the school and settlement became part of Johnson County. In 1900, the school had eighty-seven pupils with one teacher, but by 1905 had been consolidated with nearby schools. That year Bradley was a switch on the International and Great Northern Railroad. In the 1930s and 1940s, the community reported a population of twenty-five, with one business. A church and school served area residents in 1940, but the community was abandoned sometime after the 1940s.
