Baldwyn is an outgrowth of the village of Carrollville: When the Mobile and Ohio Railroad was being built during the years of 1848 to 1861, it missed Carrollville by one and one-half miles and the citizens moved to the new town of Baldwyn which was named for the Civil Engineer who surveyed the road through the town. Tishomingo, Chief of the Chickasaws lived at old Carrollville.

The Civil War battle of Brices Cross Roads was fought five miles west of town.

The population of Baldwyn was 3,334 in 2014.
