History of the club: Timothy Caldwell, a wealthy businessman from Philadelphia, decided in 1806 to build "the handsomest house in the Capital City." It later served as home for President James Monroe, ambassadors foreign and domestic, the founder of the National Weather Service, and the city's oldest club devoted to the arts.

Inspired by London's Chelsea Arts Club and the National Arts Club in Manhattan, Washington artists created the Arts club in May 1916 and purchased the Monroe House as its home. It focused on painting, sculpture, music, and drama, and was the first club in the city to admit women as charter members.

The Ivy Singles Social Club (ISSC) is a coalition of Ivy League, Seven Sister and other prestigious schools' regional alumni associations that sponsors social activities. Our events are open to all single alumni of member schools and their guests. Most of our attendees are in their 30's, 40's or 50's. All ages are welcome.
We would welcome volunteers for our board who are alumni of the University of Chicago, Brown, Penn, Duke, Johns Hopkins, Mt. Holyoke, Bryn Mawr, Smith, and similar colleges. It's fun and educational to organize events. Interested? Mention it at the front desk of our events, or contact one of our event organizers!
