Lighting Fixtures Restored for the Historic Women’s Club of Bronxville

Both the main and south entrances to the Women’s Club of Bronxville, where many a young man and miss have trotted inside for their dancing and etiquette lessons with Miss Covington — now Miss Barclay — are graced once again with lovely lighting fixtures, thanks to the Bronxville Historical Conservancy. Financing the restoration of the original fixtures was a tribute to the 80th anniversary of the clubhouse and in recognition of its placement on the National Register of Historic Places. The project involved the removal and installation of temporary lighting, as well as the rewiring and structural restoration of the fixtures. This successful lighting restoration was accomplished to conform to the original building design of Penrose Stout.
