NotesThe Arlington Club was designed by notable architectural firm Whidden & Lewis in 1910 for use as an elite men's club patterned after London's West End gentlemen's clubs. Nominated as a distinctive work by Whidden & Lewis and also for its association with the development boom in Portland following the Lewis and Clark Exposition, the Arlington Club served throughout the twentieth and into the twenty-first century as a center for social gatherings. The club is one of 61 historic buildings in downtown Portland built between 1906 and 1914 and identified as eligible for the National Register Source: Oregon State Historic Preservation Office.
