The Union Club of Boston was founded in 1863 to bolster support for the Union cause during the critical days of the American Civil War. Early members included prominent Bostonians whose impact is still felt today - Charles Frances Adams, Ralph Waldo Emerson, John Murray Forbes, Oliver Wendell Holmes, and Josiah Quincy. The club continues to bring together men and women who are leaders in their businesses and professions in a downtown Boston setting steeped in tradition, yet fully contemporary.
Today's club members enjoy broadening their circle of friends and acquaintances through frequent social occasions and activities which form the core of club life. The dining rooms and attractive private rooms further business interests. Travelers appreciate the Union Club's own bedrooms and the extensive network of reciprocal clubs in the U.S. and abroad. True to its heritage of leadership in Boston, The Union Club embraces the future with confidence drawn from the rich tapestry of the history of this former private home.
