Join New York Adventure Club for an exclusive behind-the-scenes tour of the historic National Arts Club, a private club founded in 1898 dedicated to stimulating, fostering, and promoting public interest in the arts and to educate the American people in the fine arts.
Led by the National Arts Club historian, our experience will include:
- An overview of the house’s rich history and story, from its development for New York Governor Samuel Tilden in 1844, to the home of the National Arts Club in 1906.
- A walkthrough of the historic rooms inside the landmarked Samuel Tilden Mansion at Gramercy Park South, such as the former library, dining room, and parlors.
- A look at John LaFarge stained glass panels, Ellin and Kitson sculptures, and the famous Donald MacDonald stained glass domed library, now the clubhouse bar.
- A NYAC-only look at Donald MacDonald’s stained glass domed library from the second floor
