History

 

The Woman's Town Club of Springfield, Ohio, was founded in 1922 to provide local women with a center for social and civic activities.  Their clubhouse, the Clementine Berry Buchwalter home, the former 805 East High Street residence of Captain E. Buchwalter, would provide hospitality for decades of club parties originated by women from all over the United States.

 

Clementine Berry Buchwalter opened her residence to the local women for gatherings.  Out of this grew the foundation of the Ohio Federation of Women's Clubs.

 

This beautiful historic mansion, built in 1852, and situated just moments from downtown, is the oldest contributing property of the Springfield East High Street Historical District which was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1974. According to architectural historian Kevin Rose, "This house exemplifies East High Street's remarkable story, adapting to the needs and fashions of changing times."
