“Home wasn't a set house, or a single town on a map. It was wherever the people who loved you were, whenever you were together. Not a place, but a moment, and then another, building on each other like bricks to create a solid shelter that you take with you for your entire life, wherever you may go.” ― Sarah Dessen, What Happened to Goodbye Country House, Dreams House, Gardens Gates, White Barn, Cottages, Pale, White House, Barns House, White Picket Fence
Henry W. Baker House at 233 S. Main St. in Plymouth, MI. Baker (1833-1920) built this Italianate style home in 1875. Baker had moved to this area while still a boy. As a young man, he worked as a photographer, a merchant and a lumberman. At the age of 43, he helped found the Plymouth Iron Windmill Co., which in 1895 became the Daisy Mfg. Co. The company, best known for its BB guns, operated in Plymouth until 1958, when new owners moved it to Arkansas. Baker's descendants lived here until 1943.
