Baldwin City, KS

Life is Good in Baldwin City.

Stephens Real Estate has an office on High Street in the heart of Baldwin City. This beautiful town still features hand-laid brick streets and wonderfully preserved historic homes, as well as high-quality construction in several new subdivisions. Our Baldwin agents enjoy the relaxed pace and interesting elements of their small town.

Baldwin City is home to Baker University, established in 1858 along the Santa Fe Trail. The first university in Kansas, Baker is a private, liberal arts university. Its park-like campus has been called a “Midwestern Hidden Gem” and has three buildings on the National Register of Historic Places.

One hundred years after the university was founded, the Maple Leaf Festival was born. This community event was inspired by a Baker University biology professor, Dr. Ivan Boyd. The third weekend each October, the festival is the best place to enjoy the area’s maple leaves in all their glorious color.

History lovers will find interesting sites and stories of yesteryear, with the Black Jack Battlefield and Robert Hall Pearson Park nearby. Here John Brown, a fierce opponent of slavery, led his militia against a pro-slavery force in The Battle of Black Jack, considered by many to have been the first battle of the American Civil War.
