Owners of Braselton homes know there are more than just a few treasures to discover in Historic Downtown Braselton and new ones are coming! There will be even more when the town finishes the redevelopment plan it has designed to revitalize the existing downtown area.

After being owned by the Brasleton Brothers, the town was bought for around 20 million in 1989 by actress and Georgia native Kim Basinger.
Braselton has a rich heritage and spans it’s location not only in one county, but four. If you dream of Braselton homes, you have Jackson, Hall, Gwinnett, and Barrow counties to choose from.

In 1910, when T.B. Mayfield Jr. purchased 45 Jersey cows and began delivering milk to customers in his hometown of Athens, Tennessee, little did he know that four generations later, his family milk and ice cream business would become one of the nation’s favorite dairy brands.
After T.B. Jr. retired, the next generation of the Mayfield family picked up where he left off, and in 1950, under the leadership of owners Thomas B. Mayfield III and C. Scott Mayfield Sr. Mayfield built the Southeast’s most modern milk plant. Today, Mayfield is one of the nation’s leading dairies, using advanced technology to bring the best products and innovative packaging to their customers.
