Modern day explorer, author and Bicycle Benefits founder Ian Klepetar found his way to Baldwin while riding to Portland, Maine in the summer of 2020. The Historical Water Tower caught his eye and had him daydreaming of the wild awe inspiring possibilities. Klepetar wrote to the previous owner and shared his dream to transform such a place into a gathering space that would educate, inspire and engage. Now holding the deed to the property and thrilled to help create a magical place in the neighborhood, Ian will be welcoming travelers, friends and residents to The People's Perch in order to activate their bodies, move their minds and connect with others.
