Brayton is an unincorporated community in Greeley County, Nebraska, in the United States.

History

Brayton had its start in about 1887 when the Burlington railroad was extended to that point. Brayton was likely named for a settler.

A post office was established in Brayton in 1888, and remained in operation until it was discontinued in 1945.

Today, not much is left of the village. Its main street is a country road, but unless you are looking it's difficult to see the remnants. Several buildings still exist on the site, but the area is hard to reach and overgrown.
