The Women's National Republican Club is the oldest private club for Republican women in the United States founded by Henrietta Wells Livermore in 1921.[clarification needed] The club grew out of the earlier women's suffrage movement in NY which led to the Nineteenth Amendment . The club built its third and current home on 51st street in 1934. That Neo-Georgian style building was built on the former site of Andrew Carnegie's home and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2013.[1][2]

The club continues to serve its members with guest rooms and dining, in addition to political lectures. It allows men to join as associate members.[3]
