In 1796, the Hoboken Turtle Club was founded and became the first organized social club in American History.
Founded by Col. John Stevens, early membership included Alexander Hamilton, Aaron Burr and John Jay. The first official meeting of the Turtle Club took place at what is not Sybil’s cave.
‘It must first be premised that this is no ordinary club, from the day of its foundation it has existed for but one thing, the principal of epicurean pleasure.’ – Col. Stevens
