Built in 1894, the buildings originally contained 12 three-room apartments and served as worker’s row houses.  Alumni of Harvard, Yale and Princeton had been active in western Pennsylvania for many years, but none of these individual groups were large enough to maintain their own club space.  However in 1929, Pittsburgh architect Edward B. Lee, was commissioned to transform the apartments into a joint club.  The club opened it’s doors on November 7, 1930.

During your visit, you will have the opportunity to experience this long-standing, private social club first-hand.  After walking through the London-inspired courtyard, you will be invited in to the barroom, to enjoy the comfortable setting, complete with cozy couches, original photos and the original Latin toast carved into the wooden bar.  You will also see the dining room, where the walls are graced with the names U.S Presidents who have graduated from Harvard, Yale or Princeton, and leather-bound books fill the shelves.
