 Casino de Monterrey A finales del siglo XIX la vida social de nuestra ciudad fue cobrando importancia, así como también el crecimiento de su población. Es cuando surge la necesidad de fundar un centro social, que permitirá reuniones sociales
con cierta frecuencia y que fungiera como sede de importantes y memorables eventos. En 1864 destacadas personalidades establecieron una sociedad a la que llamaron "Casino de Monterrey." Los esfuerzos por establecer este centro social se vieron ensombrecidos durante la guerra de la Intervención francesa bajo el imperio de Maximiliano de Habsburgo en que se creó una época de inestabilidad, motivo que dificultaba la subsistencia de esta sociedad en aquella época. En 1867 los precursores de esta iniciativa reanudan esfuerzos por mantener las actividades sociales y de convivencia.
Una década después, el 4 de diciembre de 1878 queda legalmente constituido de acuerdo con el "Acta de Instalación" en que se formalizaron los estatutos y objetivos que definirían el futuro de lo que hoy conocemos como Casino de Monterrey. El predio que hoy ocupa



fue adquirido en el año de 1887; después de establecerse en diversos domicilios y de
utilizar casas particulares de socios para sesionar y realizar eventos. La construcción del primer edificio corrió a cargo de la administración que presidió Don Ramón Treviño, en el año de 1887 con un proyecto presentado por los ingenieros José María Videgaray y Francisco Beltrán, el cual fue inaugurado por el entonces gobernador de Nuevo León El General Bernardo Reyes, la noche del 14 de junio de 1890. Cabe destacar que en esta fiesta se utilizó la primera planta generadora de luz de Monterrey. Este nuevo edificio fue en su época ejemplo de ingeniería, arquitectura y tecnología. En la segunda década del siglo XX en 1918, durante la presidencia de Don José A. Muguerza, se pactó la construcción de un nuevo edificio debido a siniestros ocurridos años atrás, aprobándose el proyecto del arquitecto Alfredo Giles. La primera piedra fue colocada el 27 de septiembre de 1921, inaugurando el predio el 31 de diciembre de 1922 siendo presidente del Casino Don Jesús Ferrara. Ente sus visitantes se encuentran Ex Presidentes, Jefes de Estado, miembros de la realeza europea así como reconocidos artistas, intelectuales y científicos de fama mundial de la época. Este edificio de líneas neoclásicas de principios del siglo XX es considerado monumento histórico de la ciudad. Sus ventanales



de medio punto, sus columnas y detalles ornamentales, distinguen su diseño, el cual a través de los años se ha conservado con el toque de esplendor que lo carateriza.English translation:Casino de MonterreyIn the late nineteenth century the social life of our city was taking importance, as well as population growth. It is when the need arises to establish a social center, allowing some social gatherings and often serve as host of important and memorable events.In 1864 a group of prominent individuals established a society called "Casino de Monterrey." Efforts to set down this center were overshadowed during the war of the French intervention under the empire of Maximilian of Hapsburg, at that time there was instability, making living difficult in this society. In 1867 the precursors of this initiative renew efforts to maintain social
activities and coexistence. A decade later, on December 4, 1878 is legally constituted the "Act of Installation", which formalized rules and objectives that would define the future of what we
