The William Flagg Homer House has been home to the Belmont Woman's Club since 1927. It was built as a summer home for Mr. Homer in 1853. Winslow Homer, the great American artist and nephew of William Flagg Homer, depicted it in some of his important works including, Making Havelocks for the Volunteers and Croquet Scene.
Inside this elegant Victorian mansion are fifteen spacious rooms -- an oval dining room with curved doors, a formal parlor with Italian marble fireplace, gilt and crystal chandelier and original shuttered bay windows, a graceful suspended staircase and stained glass windows -- all representative of the quality workmanship of a bygone era.
The officers of the club include:
Priscilla Hughes (Co-President)
Kelly Higgins (Co-President)
Janice Ellard (1st Vice President)
Ruth Scarfo (1st Vice President)
Karen Antetomaso (2nd Vice President)
