Description

This French Renaissance-style building, designed by John Fraser in 1862, is listed on the National Historic Register. It was added onto by Horace Trumbauer. A program of long-term phased interior renovations is in progress for this landmark institution to ensure structural integrity, enhance operating cost effectiveness, and respond to the constantly evolving needs of the club’s members.

Among the renovations, the first floor of the front of the house is devoted to “Members Only,” while the lower level features renovated employee and administrative space. The main kitchen has been upgraded to improve handicap access. The third floor was transformed into an extended members’ business and conference center, while the fitness center, spa, and the Inn at the League were expanded on the ground level and fifth floor.
