St. Botolph Club
St. Botolph was founded during a golden epoch of the City of Boston: arts, literature, music, architecture, as well as the vast commercial, shipping and professional empires that supported them, all flourished. St. Botolph Club began with weekly meetings and monthly suppers. Once the club had settled at 4 Newbury St. with its magnificent gallery, this was complemented by art exhibitions. In 1988, after many years of being a gentlemen's club, St. Botolph opened its doors to ladies as equal and honoured members. To this day the club serves its founding purpose as a place for those with a love of the arts, sciences and humanities to gather and converse.
