Home of the Maple Leaf Festival... and more

For such a small town, Baldwin City offers a lot to see and do. While best known for the Maple Leaf Festival, Baldwin has a number of historic sites and some fun activities.

It Happens Every October - the Maple Leaf Festival

No - not Octoberfest, at least not in this town. But what you do find is a typical midwestern fall festival with lots of entertainment, foods, crafts, and a parade with lots of bands. An those flaming red maple trees!!

Baker University

Baker University, founded in 1858, was Kansas' first liberal arts university. It is a learning institution of the United Methodist Church. The picturesque campus houses several historic buildings and a museum of rare Bibles.

    Hello Frank! I really enjoyed your page on Baldwin City of which I had never heard before - I learn new things every day. Love the opening picture. Happy Birthday from Finland!

    Another excellent page. I would especially love the railroad. And a fascinating bit about the Civil War that didn't know.
