"The Baldwin" Floor Plans
From this angle it is easy to see the bay window at the front of the house. A large fireplace is situated along the right wall of the parlor. The kitchen has a walk-in pantry. The sitting room is large and extends the wall of the house, giving it character. The master bedroom on the second floor has a large walk-in closet. In 1917, this medium-sized house cost between $2,600 and $2,800 to build depending on the locality.
