Maurice Braswell Cumberland County Courthouse in a ceremony Sept. 20. Family and friends of the late Braswell were on hand for the ceremony, which included the unveiling of a bronze plaque commemorating the renaming. Braswell was a decorated World War II veteran and prisoner of war who died Jan. 30 after more than 50 years as a public servant.
