Park Club
Park Club
TitlePark Club
DescriptionFrom text: "The Park Club had its beginning at a social gathering of the leading gentlemen of South Park early in the spring of 1886. The selection of its name was the natural sequence of its unrivalled location in the midst of the grand system of parks and boulevards, over whose thousands of acres of lawn and lake its windows look. While the majority of the members of the Park Club live in South Park and Hyde Park, there are many who are residents of the city, appreciating, as they do, the advantages of having a stopping place while driving to the parks. The Park is a family club, ladies being admitted to all its privileges. The Club building, four stories in height, is composed of brick and rough hewed stone."
