The George Gooderham house seen from the southwest corner of Bloor and St. George in 1892. It later became The York Club.

The York Club is a private club incorporated 22 November 1909 and located in The Annex neighborhood in downtown Toronto, Canada close to the University of Toronto (U of T).

Its building was originally constructed in 1889 as a home for George Gooderham and his large family, taking nearly three years to complete.[1] The architect was David Roberts Jr., who designed the building in the Romanesque Revival style. After George Gooderham died in mid 1905, at the age of 75, his widow Harriet Gooderham sold the home and moved to a smaller home at 224 St. George Street.[2]
