Braselton, Georgia

Braselton, Georgia

Braselton is a town in Barrow, Gwinnett, Hall, and Jackson Counties in Georgia, about 40 miles northeast of Atlanta. Braselton was named after the Braselton family that has lived in the area for some time.

The town was bought from the Braselton Families by a partnership between the Ameritech Pension fund and actress Kim Basinger in 1989 for $20 million. The Basinger-Braselton partnership hoped to establish Braselton as a tourist attraction with movie studios and a film festival. Basinger eventually sold her minor portion to the Ameritech Fund when she met financial difficulties. Local rumor is that she couldn’t afford Braselton and had to file bankruptcy.

Braselton is the home of Chateau Elan Winery. It is also the headquarters of the American Junior Golf Association, IMSA, the Panoz Motor Sports Group, and the Road Atlanta race track. Also found in Braselton are the newly arrived major distribution warehouses for Sears Appliance Division, Tractor Supply, Haverty’s Furniture and Home Depot Distribution Center.

The area around Braselton, Georgia has experienced rapid growth in the recent years, though there are still some areas of Braselton that have maintained its unique ‘Southern’ touch.
