Baldwin City, KS Contractors

Tucked neatly into the southeast corner of Douglas County, Kansas, Baldwin City is home to the oldest four-year college in the state, Baker University, which was established in 1858, just four years after the city's founding.

Area History

One of the oldest settlements in Douglas County, Baldwin City was established in 1854 and at the time consisted of 320 acres of land. Named in honor of educator John Baldwin, the town's main benefactor and founder of both the town and its university, the bustling city sprang up around the newly built Baker University campus, demonstrating the importance the institution of higher learning would hold for area residents throughout its history. Today, Baker University offers residents and visitors much more than a quality education. In addition to the classes it offers, the campus also features some of the area's most revered historic structures, buildings which should certainly be included in the itinerary of any serious tourist's visit to the area.
