Address and Phone:
Baxter, TN 00000
Baxter has had various names in its history. Before the railroad, a post office there was called "Ai," a name borrowed from a biblical city of Canaanites. After a depot was built, it was called "Mine Lick." In 1902, the community post office and depot were named Baxter in honor of Jere Baxter, president of the Tennessee Central Railroad Company. The new town grew rapidly and farmers prospered as the rails brought distant markets within reach of their agricultural products. Baxter sawmills marketed railroad ties and other wood products.
