Maumee River Yacht Club – May 1941
Founded on January 17, 1899, the original Maumee River Yacht Club (MRYC) was housed in a boathouse located just down the road from this building. It was started as a counterpoint to the Toledo Yacht Club and was originally two clubs – the Maumee River Yacht Club and the Up River Yacht Club. The two clubs met together and appear to have merged sometime in the early 1900s with the official incorporation date of November 23, 1905. The building seen here was started, after some financial troubles, in 1911 and has been home to the Maumee River Yacht Club since.
