Statement of Significance (as of designation - May 28, 1987):
The home of America's oldest and foremost yachting organization (1844). Established as a private man's club and renowned as the long-time home of the AMERICA's Cup, the structure (1900) is a brilliant example of the Neo-Baroque style and today is still highly evocative of the Gilded Age in America and of the Beaux-Arts architecture of that era.
