Historical Origin And Design Inspiration
The Castle of Seneffe or Château de Seneffe is an 18th century château located in the municipality of Seneffe in the province of Hainaut, Belgium. The château is property of the French Community of Belgium and serves as the "Centre de l'orfèvrerie de la communautÚ française" which displays a collection of antique (mainly 18th century) silverware.
In 1758 the 'Seigneurie de Seneffe' was bought by Joseph Depestre a Walloon merchant who earned a fortune by selling goods to the Imperial Austrian troops stationed in the Austrian Netherlands. Depestre's new status as a wealthy and influential individual was also confirmed by the acquisition of noble titles such as 'Seigneur de Seneffe' (Lord of Seneffe) and 'Count of Turnhout'. The new castle designed by Laurent-Benošt Dewez had to match with Depestre's new noble status. It was erected between 1763 and 1768 in a novel neoclassical style. When Joseph Depestre died in 1774 the decoration of the chateau and the embellishment of the park were continued by his widow and his eldest son Joseph II Depestre.
After the French revolution and the subsequent occupation of the Austrian Netherlands by the French republic the chateau was confiscated (1799). It was bought by a figurehead assigned by the Depestre family and came back into their possession after the ascent of Napoleon as Emperor of the French in 1804. The chateau was sold by Joseph II Depestre's son HonorÚ in 1837 and bought by the Daminet family. In 1888 it was acquired from them by Baron Goffinet. The last private proprietor was a Belgian banker of Jewish origin, Franz Philipson who bought the 'domaine' in 1909. In the advent of the Second World War the Philippson family fled to the United States. When German troops invaded Belgium in 1940 the chÚteau was confiscated by the Germans and used as a local headquarter and a summer residence for the German military Governor of Belgium, General Alexander von Falkenhausen.
