1925 home with impressive gardens and towering oaks

The Ballenger House (circa 1925) is a beautiful red brick home built in the foursquare style and located in the heart of Historic Downtown Seneca. Surrounded by sumptuous gardens and towering oaks, the home still has the original windows, cabinets, oak floors through the house and maple floors in the kitchen and breakfast room. Used as the primary residence of the Ballenger family until 1980, the home was deeded to the Seneca Woman’s Club to honor three family members who belonged to the philanthropic “Once a Week Club.” The club originated in 1896 and still meets today, making it the oldest existing club in the country. In addition to a meeting place for non-profit organizations, this lovely house is used for weddings, showers, art exhibits and fundraisers.
