12. Literary Club of Cincinnati

Founded in 1849, the Literary Club in Cincinnati is the oldest in existence and has quite a shining history. The club is a way for its member to present literary works and for authors to speak to the members. Since the club’s founding, there have been many great authors like Ralph Waldo Emerson, Mark Twain, and Robert Frost as well as Presidents Rutherford B. Hayes and William Howard Taft speak at the club. The home of the Literary Club was originally built in 1820 and has been at this location since 1930.
