Baird Reviews

1 review
It is a small town, nice people, school is good, the teachers are very friendly, caring, and involved. It is about a 25 minute drive to Abilene. There isn't much to do here, but that is alright if you are looking for quiet. The fire department is a volunteer department, but the are awesome fast response times, and a great group of people.
