The Maryland Club formed in 1857 when workboats, sailing ships, and steamboats jammed Baltimore harbor. Political parties frequently met here to nominate candidates for President, and citizens proudly referred to the place as “the monumental city.” The new club chose as its first president a well-educated lover of horse racing and nephew of the late French emperor, Napoleon Bonaparte. The members originally settled in an imposing house that Robert Mills had designed and that stood on the northeast corner of Franklin and Cathedral streets for 35 years.  January 1, 1892, saw the transfer of furniture, books, artwork, and antiquities on dozens of wagons headed to the current location, 1 East Eager Street, “as handsome a building devoted entirely to social purposes as there is in the country”, claimed the Baltimore Sun. - Robert J. Brugger

Today, the Romanesque architecture of the Clubhouse still commands its stature in Mount Vernon, among other historic landmarks of Baltimore city. The Maryland Club is a well-established social club with a diverse and inclusive membership. 
Within the clubhouse is a blend of tradition and modern attributes of renovated social dining areas, event spaces and a state-of-the-art athletics center. The world-class racquet sports facility includes three double squash courts and three single courts that surround a lounge bar and pro shop. The Maryland Club is where our members form a camaraderie of life-long friendships and partnerships as a community. Our engaging member events and excursions both outside the Club Walls and inside the Maryland Club, create lasting memories at the place where you belong.

It is the policy of the Maryland Club to establish, promote and maintain a diverse and inclusive membership of highly qualified individuals regardless of race, gender, religion, ethnicity and sexual orientation.



Our club combines tradition with salutary change by preserving the nineteenth-century traditions.
