History of Park Name
Baldwin Park was named after the previous owner of the property, Jesse Glenn "Bud" Baldwin, great-grandson of James Schluter (later changed to Slayter).
Mr. Slayter was a German immigrant who fought in the Texas Revolution and, subsequently granted 320 acres for his service in the Texian Army. The land remained in the family until Mr. Baldwin fell into poor health. The family sold off parcels for their sustainment, including 51.24 acres of land where the Lakeview Estates community is today.
