Braselton Mayor Bill Orr honored his predecessors and brought the town’s centennial celebration to an official close with the unveiling of oil portraits of all five mayors at a reception Friday.
“We envisioned this tribute during our planning for the town’s centennial in 2016-17 so this work reflects more than a year in the making," Orr said. "We commissioned an accomplished portraitist, Neal Dunlap Hughs of Gainesville, for the oil paintings. It’s our pleasure to unveil these and share with the community.
The five mayors are William Henry Braselton, James Lewis Braselton, Henry Edward Braselton, Pat Graham and Bill Orr.
The portraits hang in the Police & Municipal Court Building just outside the town council chambers.
