The front facade

This red brick Georgian Revival building is located near Lake Michigan. The lakeside end of the bulding mirrorw the front facade. (See below.) This elegant style is appropriate for a private club frequented by the wealthy.
The front facade features gigantic pilasters exending over the two central registers (and echoed again in brick in the top register), an elaborate entablature setting off the central registers, arched windows with decorative keystones, and repeated balustrades.

The copper-faced top story was added in the 1950s by Milwaukee architect Elliot B. Mason.
