Pennsylvania Barge Club
Founded in 1861, Pennsylvania Barge Club joined the Schuylkill Navy in 1865, occupying Boathouse no. 4 on Philadelphia’s Boathouse Row. The club won 106 races during its time in the Schuylkill Navy, but suffered a drastic reduction in membership following World War II. Pennsylvania Barge Club eventually became United States Rowing Society.
