The Congressional Club (founded in 1908), is an historic residence, located at 2001 New Hampshire Avenue, Northwest, Washington, D.C., in the U Street Corridor neighborhood. The organization it hosts, which is the official club of Congressional spouses, was created in May 1908 with the Sixtieth Congress passage of HR22029. The Congressional Club is the only club in the world to be incorporated by an act of Congress. Since 1912, the club has hosted a luncheon honoring the First Lady of the United States. It is the largest annual event sponsored by the Club.
Built and dedicated in 1914, the neoclassical clubhouse is designated as a contributing property to the Greater U Street Historic District, an historic district listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1998. The building was individually listed on the Register in 2011.
