Welcome to Baldwyn, MS - Where Tradition Touches Tomorrow.
"Your leadership is determined to make decisions today that will make a difference tomorrow. "
In 1772 Abednego Inman, a native of Tennessee served alongside Daniel Boone in his exploration of the South. It was during their exploration into Mississippi that Inman was wounded on multiple occasions in skirmishes with the established Cherokees and Chickasaws, yet it was his determination and faith that moved him to prosper. Abednego Inman would later become one of the early settlers of the area we now know as Baldwyn. It is that same determination and faith that drives the prosperity of our beloved Baldwyn today.
Memories of Main Street Baldwyn are pleasant and comforting for me. I grew up shopping and visiting with merchants and clerks who became lifelong friends. My children have benefited from life in a hometown where the residents know and love each other. Our history and heritage has been played out every day in the buildings and on the streets of our town.
When I shop, purchase groceries, fill up my car, fill my prescriptions, order flowers or a birthday gift, I always shop with a "locally" owned business. Putting a face (friend) with the business is so important to me. Those guys are the faces of our community and the businesses that give back to our schools, churches, civic organizations, community events and so much more.
Baldwyn is more than a city. Baldwyn is a family. From the wonderful instructors who treat your children as their own to the pharmacy who offers to bring your medicine to your house because they know you don't want to get your sick child back out again to feeling of family wherever you go...I wouldn't want to live anywhere else on earth.
