1975 Owner:  Dwight L. Osenbaugh. 12-13-14-Sib 1
Description: 3 story yellow brick Traditional home with red  tile roof, gable with 3rd floor dormer: 5 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths.
Story 1:      Mrs. Baldwin moved here from Milford (probably rented) with her 3 children, Bill, Mary Louise and Francis George.  While living on Oxford she sold several Terrace Park lots which she owned.  Helen was given to understand those sales were in order to finance Mary Louise's coming out party at Terrace Park Community House.  Helen did not remember when the Baldwins moved from Terrace Park or why.  Francis George Baldwin was the first person killed from this area in WWII.  He was shot down over Italy.  Thus the Terrace Park American Legion was named for him.  (Information from a Baldwin family descendant and from next door neighbor, Helen Barnett.)
     There's a folder in the TP Historical Society archives on this family with much more information.  Various members of the family owned a lot of land in Terrace Park.  They had a large summer home in Milford, the Ripples.
     This family is not related to the Baldwin piano family.  
Story 2: According to Helen Barnett this house was built c. 1910.  Evidently this was a lot with a lot of trees which is at least partly why Carl and Alice Pruiss bought it.  A great many of these trees went down in the tornado (1969) that went through Terrace Park during the time they owned it.  Thus they moved to 112 Michigan.
Story 3: Dwight L. Osenbaugh was born 24 March 1934 and died 16 May 1975, aged 41 years, buried in Section 20 of Greenlawn Cemetery, Milford OH, Craver Funeral Home. (Another source says he died 9 May, 1975.)
Story 4: This is one of the houses remembered with great fondness by girls in the Terrace Park High School class of 1955.  They remembered wonderful architectural details and the 4 bedrooms in the 4 corners upstairs.  Their Ourand classmate lived here at the time.
