The Princeton Club in Philadelphia was located in two joined buildings, 1221 and 1223 Locust Street, from about 1910 through the 1970s. The building at 1223 was designed by Frank Furness, and 1221 is believed to have been designed by Lindley Johnson. Adaptations were made by the club in 1915 and 1919 to join the buildings together.
The club was founded in Philadelphia in 1868 and was housed in five other buildings before moving to Locust Street. According to its 1912 Yearbook, the club served "to foster good fellowship among Princeton men; and also to provide a suitable place for Alumni meetings, smokers, etc."
