Contacting the Preserve Shady Rest Committee

Watercolor of Shady Rest Country ClubThe Preserve Shady Rest Committee was established in June 2013 to research and preserve the clubhouse of the historic Shady Rest Country Club; the first African American country club in the United States. We are committed to the improvement of the Shady Rest clubhouse and raising awareness of the history of the Shady Rest. We understand the Shady Rest’s importance in both American history and Black history. We hope to honor the history of the Shady Rest by telling its story as the true “A Place For Us” that it was for many Black Americans.
