The town has a total area of 36.5 square miles, of which, 36.5 square miles is land and 0.03% is water.
The south and east edges of the six by six mile square that would become Browning were first surveyed in 1851 by crews working for the U.S. government.
In the fall of 1861 a different crew of surveyors marked all the section corners in the township, walking through the woods and swamps, measuring with chain and compass.
When done, the deputy surveyor filed this general description:

The Surface of this Township is generally level or gently rolling. Soil is principally 2nd Rate Timber, Hemlock, Birch, Sugar, White Pine, Spruce and Fir and it is well watered by numerous Small Streams of pure water
