Welcome to Baldwyn

About Baldwyn Mississippi



Baldwyn is an outgrowth of the village of Carrollville: When the Mobile and Ohio Railroad was being built during the years of 1848 to 1861, it missed Carrollville by one and one-half miles and the citizens moved to the new town of Baldwyn which was named for the Civil Engineer who surveyed the road through the town. Tishomingo, Chief of the Chickasaws lived at old Carrollville but died at Little Rock, Arkansas in 1839 of small pox while being moved west with his tribe. On March 16, 1942 two tornadoes, only twenty-five minutes apart, struck Baldwyn and killed 65 persons.
