This is the main club room on the ground
floor. Designed to be similar to the Club room at
the University Club in NY but one quarter of the
size. Most Princeton men of that era were closely
connected with the University Club.
The Dining Room – where all meals are served
– was originally served by waiters and each
member was greeted by name upon entering.
The Kitchen is located on the second floor
(common club design in the early 1900’s to
keep heat from cooking elements away from the
diners) and is linked to the dining room and
serving pantry via elevator and dumbwaiter.
Wood and plaster ceiling details were added in
1916 by the architect.
The dining room space boasts of three
- First: ‘They Take the Sun from the World Who Take
Friends from Life.’
- Middle: Ubi Amici Ibidem Sunt Opes ‘Where there
are friends there are riches’
- Last: ‘Out of Many Make One’
