Ballinger was proud to attend the ceremonial groundbreaking at Juniata Terrace last Friday, kicking off the town’s centennial celebrations. Originally built by the Ballinger Company between the years 1923 and 1925, Juniata Terrace was established as the factory town of the American Viscose Company, whose former plant endures as an example of Ballinger’s pioneering superspan sawtooth roof design.

Residents shared stories and celebrated the community’s resilience and architectural stewardship. An early example of the garden city design movement, the town plans to submit an application to join the National Register of Historic Places later this year.
