|Feb. 16-17: Main Street Directors’ Retreat in Canton|
With a population of just 4,000 in the hills of Northeast Mississippi, Baldwyn might sound like a sleepy little Southern town. And, 20 years ago, it might have lived up to that perception. Driving downtown, one would see a pretty desolate street with many shuttered storefronts.
What has occurred since then has been described by Baldwyn residents as a “revival.” Led by dedicated downtown merchants and business leaders, and the help of the Baldwyn Main Street Chamber, downtown is now flourishing.
