Statement of Significance (as of designation - May 11, 1976):
Occupied today by the National Arts Club, this building was the residence (c. 1860-c. 1885) of one of the central figures in the disputed Tilden-Hayes Presidential election (1876) and resultant compromise of 1877, events which for all practical purposes ended Reconstruction. Tilden exposed the infamous Tweed and Canal Rings, and is an outstanding representative of the conservative political reformers of the 1870s.
