Long Description:
The following is an excerpt from New York: A Guide to the Empire State in the "Buffalo Points of Interest" section.
The SATURN CLUB (private), 977 Delaware Ave., of red brick and limestone trim, is in the style of an English Tudor manor house, with mullioned windows, leaded panes, full-story bay windows, and a find Tudor doorway. The cornerstone was laid in 1921 and the building opened in 1922; the architect was Duane Lyman of Buffalo. Above the larger of the two fireplaces in the main lounge is inscribed the club's motto: 'Where the women cease from troubling and the wicked are at rest.'
On October 21, 1885, Carleton Sprague invited thirteen friends to his house on Main Street for the purpose of forming a new club for young, up and coming men. The club grew quickly in membership and wealth and moved several times in its early years. In December 1920, the new building committee suggested selling the current clubhouse at Delaware & Edward, and build a new one elsewhere. On October 21, 1921 the cornerstone was laid with construction complete exactly one year later. Total cost of the building was $500,000. The Club still exists to this day in the same building.
