Description Watercolor 15x11;It is a private social club in Seattle. The building, completed in 1904, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The building has a Tudor revival style with red brick and pre-cast stone facade. In the rough and tumble days of Seattle in 1888, a trio of business pioneers and visionaries -Thomas Burke, William Peters and John Learyestablished The Rainier Club. Their civic-mindedness was fueled by the desire to have a private place where they and other leaders of the community could entertain, socialize and do business.Now over 125 years later, the Club still serves its original capacity, a gathering place for exchanging ideas, building relationships and brokering business that will continue to shape the character and direction of the city, the region and the world.
