Built Circa 1890

Baker House was the home to Senator David Hume Baker and his wife Mary. They moved from Kentucky where he served as a State Senator. He also served as a Florida Senator for Marion and Sumter Counties. He was a bank investor, county commissioner and was an orange grower.

The house has stood for over 100 years and has been home to six generations of Bakers as well as serving as the post office for Orange Home, the name of the community in 1890. The area around the house has changed, but it is a true testament to the craftsmanship of days gone by and is a piece of Sumter County history. The family donated the home and property to the City of Wildwood in 2012.
