Capitol Hill Club - USA

The Capitol Hill Club has a rich heritage. The concept of a national social club for Republicans began as the dream of the late New Jersey Congressman, James C. Auchincloss, in 1950. Auchincloss and a group of 100 founding members from 22 states formed the nucleus of what has become the nation’s premier political club. Beginning with the purchase of historic Capitol Hill property where the Library of Congress Madison Building stands today, the group opened the first clubhouse in 1951. Eleven years later, the Club moved to more spacious headquarters, and in 1972 built its present home, just one block from the U.S. Capitol. From its inception, members of the Capitol Hill Club have included the nation’s most influential people – Presidents and Vice Presidents, GOP Members of Congress, Governors, state party leaders and influential Republicans everywhere.
