All About Baldwinsville, NY
The village of Baldwinsville is named after Dr. Jonas Baldwin, the man responsible for the dam across the Seneca River which serves as a private canal and generates energy. The village initially grew as a center for local farming. Eventually the private canal around the dam was made obsolete by the New York State Barge Canal on the river’s south shore.
Baldwinsville was connected to Syracuse and Oswego by the Erie Lackawanna Railway. The village had small factories as well as agriculture, taking advantage of the ample water supply from Lake Ontario. More recently, it has evolved into a riverside community. It is home Grace Episcopal Church, to one of the first churches in the country to use electric lighting.
The local Civil War monument in lists the names of dozens of farm boys who died fighting in the Union Army. They served under General John A. Logan in Sherman’s army. Modern Baldwinsville has a population of under 8,000 people.

If you aren’t sure what qualifies as an orthodontic emergency, it includes problems like a loose band or bracket or a loose wire if you can’t put it back in place or clip it. If a wire is poking, you can most likely cover it with wax or clip it yourself, and general soreness can be treated with a warm saltwater rinse and over-the-counter pain medication.
