There are many treasures to discover in our Historic Downtown and new ones await as the Town is currently undergoing a redevelopment plan designed to revitalize our existing downtown.  Many of the Town’s historic buildings have been renovated in keeping with the charm and small town feel Braselton has been known for since the Braselton Brothers first opened a store in the early 1900’s. Visitors can enjoy year-round activities in downtown from family friendly movies, to outdoor concerts, antique and garden festivals, and other holiday events.  Come on, come check out the excitement as we grow and see why Braselton is a premier live, work and play community!

Braselton Downtown Development Authority

The Braselton Downtown Development Authority works to assure the long-term economic stability of Downtown Braselton by maintaining the small-town character of the district and supporting the fundamentals that assure Braselton is a great place to live, work, play, invest, and do business.

Braselton’s Downtown Development Authority was formed in 2009 and is composed of a seven (7) member Board of Directors, appointed by the Braselton Town Council, to serve as advocates and advisers to the Council on issues related to economic growth and development in Downtown Braselton. Their goal is to strengthen the small-town character of the community. They work closely with Braselton Town Hall and within the Braselton business community to provide a bridge between the business and residential communities for the benefit of the entire Town of Braselton. The DDA’s daily operation is modeled after the National Trust for Historic Preservation's successful National Main Street Program. The Main Street Program provides a comprehensive approach to the economic revitalization of the historic commercial center of a community. While based upon a commitment to the preservation of historic commercial buildings, the Main Street Program is as much about preserving a strong sense of community as it is about preserving buildings. Main Street is based on four central elements that form the basis for the Braselton Downtown development program. These four points are Organization, Promotion, Design, and Economic Restructuring. Downtown Braselton has been an accredited Main Street community since 2014.
