Founded in Cincinnati in 1862 by music teacher Dwight Hamilton Baldwin, the Baldwin Company began as a retail seller of pianos and organs. From the start, D. H. Baldwin demonstrated a gift for hiring quality employees, one of whom was Civil War veteran Lucien Wulsin. Wulsin accepted a partnership in the company and in 1899, the two began designing and building their own keyboard instruments. Three years later the Baldwin Piano Company was established, and the following year the partners shipped out the first piano manufactured under their own roof.

For over 150 years, Baldwin’s grand pianos have graced celebrated concert halls and been the first choice of the world’s best pianists.
