Baxter History

Established in 1945 by Kenneth David “K.D” Baxter in Carthage, Illinois, Baxter Construction Company continues building on his excellence of quality, commitment, client satisfaction, and enforcing a handshake as your contract.

Frank Baxter moved Baxter Construction in 1957 from Illinois to its current Corporate office location in Fort Madison, Iowa, expanding the company from residential to light commercial work.

Today, Tony Baxter and his son Michael Baxter are building exclusively commercial and taking their family name to a national level. They have grown to add an Operations office located in Des Moines, Iowa, and continue their time-honored family tradition of Trust, Performance, and Results since 1945.
