Braswell was the location of the only tunnel on Southern Railway's Chattanooga to Atlanta main line. In 1979 railroad engineers bypassed the tunnel by cutting through Braswell mountain slightly to the east.

Despite its small size, Braswell has its own police department and a small City Hall, the Fennell Building.
