Long Description:
From page 174 (map on page 175):

"24. GENESEE VALLEY CLUB, 421 East Ave., built
in 1840, was formerly the Oilman Perkins Home, one of
the early residential show places on East Avenue. Of
Georgian Colonial design, the building is set well back in
a spacious plot landscaped with a variety of shrubs and
magnolia trees. A recent addition provides a gymnasium
and swimming pool. The club was organized in 1885-"

Surprisingly enough, it serves the same function today that it did when it was built in 1885. "Membership is by invitation to men and women of affability! Good character and reputation who are deemed acceptable on their Individual merits.". It is a exclusive club (exclusive enough that one needs a login and password to even access their website (visit link) that specializes in athletics and dining, with the usual country club sports with the exception of golf, according to ROCWIKI (visit link)
