New Century Clubhouse, also known as Square House, is a historic clubhouse for a local women's club located in West Chester, Chester County, Pennsylvania. It was built in 1914, and is a two-story, "T"-shaped, stuccoed building with flanking one-story wings in the Colonial Revival style. It sits on a raised basement and has a hipped roof. The front entrance features a porch with Doric order columns. The five bay rear wing houses an auditorium, with stage and dressing rooms.[2] As of January 2010, the building was being used by a Unitarian church.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1]
