Founded in 1894, The Twentieth Century Club is a private club whose excellent facilities are available for innumerable functions. The building itself is a 4-story 16th Century Italian Renaissance Revival whose main entrance features a circular drive.
The original charter was dedicated to the purpose of creating an organized center for womenís work, thought and action and the advancement of their interests and the promotion of science, literature and art.
A uniquely Pittsburgh institution, The Twentieth Century Club occupies a distinguished position in the rich cultural history of Pittsburgh. Itís motto, "non nobis solum, sed toti mundo" --- "not for ourselves, but for the whole world" --- reflects its continuing commitment to womenís intellectual and social well-being and service. In that tradition, it served as a chapter of the Red Cross and sold War Bonds during World War II.
One of the most spacious and outstanding rooms in the club, the Art Deco Ballroom, is considered to be one of the finest examples of the style remaining in the United States and is often the settng for weddings and other special events.
