"We are thrilled to be able to open the Braselton Visitor Center again," said Mary Williams, Mayfield General Manager. "As we indicated last fall, we were eager to reopen if we could find an economically viable way of doing so. Many guests suggested they would be willing to pay a small fee for the informational tours. In addition, the Town of Braselton has offered its support. We know the Visitor Center has been a great way for our business to connect with our consumers and the general public, and we're excited to bring this attraction back to the Braselton community."
