The Chicago Club was organized in 1869 as an outgrowth of the old Dearborn Club located on Michigan Avenue near Jackson Street. The first clubhouse of the Chicago Club was situated at the corner of Wabash Avenue and Eldridge Court. It was destroyed in the Great Chicago Fire in 1871. The present building was erected shortly afterward.
