St. Botolph Club
199 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston MA 02116
St. Botolph was founded in a golden epoch of the City of Boston. Arts, literature, music, architecture, clubs and public affairs, as well as the vast commercial, shipping and professional empires that supported them, were all experiencing a great flowering.
The early years began weekly meetings and monthly suppers and, especially after the Club settled at the great house at 4 Newbury St. with its magnificent gallery, art exhibits. There were shows for many artists, including some of the Club's own. This custom has continued to the present day.
After many years of being only a gentleman's club the St. Botolph Club opened its doors to ladies as equal and honored members in 1988.
To this day the Club continues to serve its founding purpose as a place for those with a love of the arts, sciences and humanities to gather and converse.
