Significance: Built in 1832 by Fredrick Baldwin, one of Hudson's earliest merchants. He had New England journeymen, imported to work on Western Reserve Academy buildings, construct his house of black walnut. On December 17, 1841, his daughter Caroline Baldwin Babcock was born. In 1920 she bequeathed $75,000 to starting the library and historical society.
