Learn More About Braselton, Georgia
Situated northeast of Atlanta, Braselton is a growing town straddling Barrow, Gwinnett, Jackson, and Hall counties in the state of Georgia. Its total area has about doubled through annexations of surrounding areas over the years as more people move here to enjoy the small-town ambiance or to work or do business.

The parts in Barrow and Gwinnett counties are part of the Atlanta-Sandy-Springs-Marietta Metropolitan Area, while the Hall County portion is included in both the Atlanta and Gainesville Metropolitan Statistical Areas.
The history of Braselton is traced to Harrison Braselton who bought 786 acres of land in the area to the north of the Hosch Plantation and built a home there. The town was named after the dirt farmer who was said to have married a daughter of the rich Hosch Plantation owner. A consortium headed by Georgian actress Kim Basinger bought 1,751 acres of land here from Braselton Brothers Inc in 1989 with the aim of making it a tourist destination. That project was eventually abandoned as Basinger declared personal bankruptcy five years later.
