Baldwin Reviews

Here in Baldwin, Louisiana, it is a bit small but very friendly. Everyone is somehow related to one another or good friends with each other. The major is very kind-heart and does almost everything she can for the people. She goes out of her way to make sure everything is taken cared of. I've lived here most of my life and appreciate everyone around. There isn't many activities to do, but we still have good times visiting each others homes and hanging out. Baldwin is one of those towns that you have to make the best of.

Been here for 12 years. We bought our first home here. Our old mayor sucked. We had tons of water problems. We recently got a new mayor and problems seem to be getting better. The town has money issues but we have a nice little neighborhood.
