The women renamed it the Sulgrave Club, a club intended for music, art and social gatherings. The new club's name came from Sulgrave, the civil parish in Northamptonshire, England that had been the ancestral family home of George Washington.ArchitectureThe Sulgrave Club was designed by Frederick H. Brooke in a Beaux-Arts design from the 18th century. It is one of Washington’s first mansions to follow this style of architecture. The house was built of yellow Roman brick and cream terra cotta.
