City of Braden
Braden, Tennessee - When the Louisville and Nashville Railroad was beginning to
lay its present
roadbed into Memphis in 1850, Braden, Tennessee came into
existence. The McCraw family is
closely associated with present-day Braden. Five members
of the McCraw family came to
Braden before the turn of the century. In 1909, the C. T.
McCraw building was built to house the town store and like many stores of its day, sold almost any
item that a community resident might need.
Braden is a small town nestled in northwestern Fayette County at
the intersection of Highways 59 and 70. It has earned the
diminutive distinction of having what is probably the tiniest
post office in the state-located in a building no larger than a
stock trailer. Inside, one discovers the dignified wood
and metal boxes that graced the little country post office 80
years ago, but don't be fooled--the postal services furnished
here are thoroughly modern.
