The Civic League Day Nursery has occupied the historic Balfour Home since 1975. The house was originally owned by Eleazer Damon, a pioneer resident of Rochester, and his wife Caroline. Their daughter, Hattie, married William J. Mayo, M.D., on this site in 1884. Hattie later inherited the house from her parents. She and Dr. Will remodeled it as a wedding gift to their daughter, Carrie, who married a Canadian physician, Donald C. Balfour, in 1910. The Balfour family lived here for fifty years and made their home a center of hospitality.
