The New Haven Lawn Club, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was originally built in 1891 as a place for wealthy New Haven residents to play tennis. Russell Sargent, Eli Whitney, and William Beebe were among its founding members. After being burnt to the ground in 1929, the present Georgian mansion was re-opened again in 1931. Designed by the famous New Haven architect Douglas Orr, the Club’s architecture reflects both the Art Deco and Colonial Revival style that was popular at that time.
