Building History

Bay Area politician and businessman James Duval Phelan (1861-1930 contracted with the au courantarchitect A. Page Brown (1859-1896) to design this men's club for local businessmen in San Jose, CA, then a sleepy town 42 miles south of the state's main metropolis, San Francisco. The building, done in the Mission Revival Style, compared favorably to another of Brown's early essays in the style, his California Pavilion at the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago (1893).
