Baldwinsville is in an area steeped in old traditions. Most of the communities along the river systems in the area were connected to, and a part of, the old Erie Canal System. There are numerous parks and picnic areas along these waterways and many have dedications and plaques with stories of the history.
It is named after Dr. Baldwin and his wife Eliza who visited the area in 1798, returning to settle in 1808 to start the community. Dr. Baldwin built a dam across the Seneca River to generate energy and a private canal to keep the integrity of the water highway. It incorporated in 1848 as the Village of Baldwinsville.
Baldwinsville initially grew as a local center for a prosperous farming area, with a grain mill located on an island in the center of town between the old McHarrie Locks (now part of the New York State Barge Canal) and the Seneca River. It was also served by the Erie Lackawanna Railway, connecting Baldwinsville to the cities of Syracuse and Oswego. In addition to agriculture, Baldwinsville had small factories, such as Morris Machine Works, Jardine Bronze Foundry, and others. A large brewery now owned by Anheuser-Busch was constructed immediately east of the village in the mid-1970s to take advantage of ample water supplies from Lake Ontario. As agriculture and industry have receded, Baldwinsville has evolved into an attractive and picturesque riverside community.
