The club, modelled on the Three Arts Club of New York, was founded in 1912. In 1914 the club commissioned their own building, designed by architects Holabird & Roche.[2] This building provided a residential space continuously until 2004, when the last of the residents moved out. In 2007 the building was sold to developers.[3] Over 13,000 women had stayed in the club.[4]

In 1981 the building, located in the Near North Side neighborhood at 1300 N. Dearborn Street, was listed as a Chicago Landmark.[5]
