Hello, I am Mayor Jeff Wilhite and welcome to Baxter, Tennessee’s website. We are located in beautiful western Putnam County with Interstate 40, US Highway 70 and State Highway 56 running through our city limits. The Nashville and Eastern Railroad runs through our Central Business District and Industrial District. There are three Putnam County Schools in Baxter; Baxter Elementary School, Cornerstone Middle School, and Upperman High School.
I own a small manufacturing business and Baxter is the perfect place for my family and business because of it’s location at exit 280 of I-40, the three quality schools, and the friendly small town atmosphere. Come see why Baxter, Tennessee is a great place to live and work.
