City of Berkeley Landmark - designated in 1990

— Benjamin G. McDougall, Architect - 1910 —

Originating among working class Englishmen in 1844, the Young Men's Christian Association was brought to North America in 1851 to promote a "full and balanced life" through religious devotion and athletic activity. Berkeley's charter organization was established in 1903.

Business and service organizations raised the substantial sum of $118,003 to construct this Georgian Revival style building, designed by the architect of the nearby Shattuck Hotel, on land donated by Rosa M. Shattuck and her estate. The original exterior remains largely intact.

An adjacent 1945 building for post-war USO servicemen's activities was demolished for construction of new residential and gymnasium spaces in 1960, and expanded further in 1994.
