History of Sunnyside at Baldwin Farms
The name “Sunnyside” comes from the rich history of the land. In the mid-19th century, Captain John Berry, one of the most respected builders in the antebellum Piedmont, resided where Baldwin Farms is now located. Captain Berry’s notoreity came from the many structures, churches and government buildings in Hillsborough that he helped construct – most notably, the Orange County Courthouse. Captain Berry’s original home sits at the corner of the farm on Baldwin Road and St. Mary’s Road, which he aptly named “Sunnyside” after the beautiful sunshine that graces this area of the county.
