Long Description:
"The California Historic Landmark designation for the Berkeley City Club reads as follows: “The Berkeley City Club was organized by women in 1927 to contribute to social, civic, and cultural progress. The building, constructed in 1929, is one of the outstanding works of noted California architect Julia Morgan, whose interpretation of Moorish and Gothic elements created a landmark of California design.” The building is only one of three California Historic Landmarks in Berkeley, the other two being Piedmont Way and the historic core of the University of California campus.

Having launched an energetic membership campaign, the Berkeley Women’s City Club (as it was then called) grew rapidly, and by the time its six-story clubhouse opened in late 1930, the organization boasted 4,000 members." (visit link)
