History of Bailey

Thank you for your patience as we compile the story of Bailey.


We plan to gather a timeline, some fun facts and other tid-bits about our town to share here with all of you.


If you have any suggestions or information that would be helpful, please email Commissioner Killion at [email protected].


Thank you so much.
