Named after Bruno Township, after an early hotel owner there, the city of Bruno was incorporated on 29 August 1903. Before, the Eastern Railway Company of Minnesota operated a station in 1887 known as Mansfield Station, a village owned and platted by Fitzhugh Burns. Post office service began in 1896. Because many of the early settlers were from Czechoslovakia, the city may also have been named for Brno, a village in the Czech Republic.

Bruno is a small town, intersected by Minnesota State Highway 23. The town has three churches, a U.S. Post Office (ZIP code 55712), an auto repair shop, a thrift store, volunteer fire department and a tavern. The tavern offers limited food and drinks, but has recently[when?] added free Wi-Fi wireless Internet service, which one is not likely to find for free between North Branch and Duluth. In late 2014, the tavern was destroyed in a fire but, in spring 2015, plans to rebuild were announced on its Facebook page. There is also a small park for travelers to park and rest with restrooms and a well for fresh water. Bruno is the location of Nemadji Research Corporation.
