Cincinnati Athletic Club


In the summer of 1853, a group of men from Barrett's Gymnasium formed the Young Men's Gymnastic Association which later came to be known as the Cincinnati Athletic Club.

The club's current location was built in 1903 and was cited by numerous newspapers as being a gymnasium "without peer".

The CAC was the center of fitness and athletic competition in the Midwest with opponents including Purdue, Ohio State, and the University of Louisville in boating, cycling, boxing, swimming, shot put, weightlifting, wrestling, track and field, basketball, and football.

Along with its prestige in athletics, the club has boasted membership including four presidents (Garfield, Harrison, Hayes, and Taft), William Procter, Barney Kroger, Jeffrey Lazarus, and David Leibman among notable others.
