In 1984 the 20th Century Club purchased a historic home in the Quapaw Quarter district of Little Rock to provide lodging for cancer patients. The Hope Lodge became the vibrant center of the Club’s outreach effort for more than 20 years. However, maintaining the older building – which was listed on the National Register of Historic Places – became more and more costly.
In order to focus the highest percentage of funds possible toward its mission, the 20th Century Club sold the historic structure in 2005 and began planning for the construction of a more efficient, modern facility. The 20th Century Club’s Lodge opened on April 17, 2011.
