 Thank you for visiting our website.  We hope that you will enjoy browsing around.  Whether you are here to find out about our wonderful school system, businesses or just to see what is new in Baxter,  WE WELCOME YOU.

Our small community continues to grow.  People in Baxter take pride in our town and are very supportive and the residences are well taken care of.  We pride ourselves in keeping Baxter a clean inviting community.

The school system is phenomenal.  We have a very nice facility along with a sports complex west of town for football, baseball, soccer etc.  This is a top notch complex and school facility that we are very proud of.

We have an excellent volunteer staff for both fire and rescue.  They are very dedicated to protecting and serving our community.

Since we are in the center of commuting to Marshalltown, Des Moines, Grinnell and Newton we are kind of a bedroom Community.  We have had the pleasure of welcoming new families who want the look and feel of the small community living and benefits.  No more hub bub of the bigger city.

Baxter has many things to offer.  This website should assist you in finding out what you would like to know about our great community and how to get involved.

Again, welcome to Baxter...  We look forward to serving you.



Stephen C Smith

Mayor, City of Baxter
