New Haven Lawn Club

New Haven - 1990-Present

The New Haven Lawn Club was originally founded in 1891 with residence in a clubhouse that was destroyed by fire in 1929. This project is a collection of phased renovations and upgrades to the 1931 clubhouse that replaced the original clubhouse. This clubhouse was designed by Dougle Orr, it marries colonial revival with art modern architectural styles and is still considered one of New Haven’s most prestigious athletic and social clubs.

In 2003 this clubhouse joined the listing on the US National Historic Places.
