1882 is the year Henry Clay Frick purchased the Italianate-style home we know today as Clayton, the cornerstone of the Frick’s collections. Members of the 1882 Society are, likewise, cornerstones of the vital philanthropic support necessary to advance the museum’s mission. In appreciation, the Frick offers members of the 1882 Society opportunities to broaden their knowledge in a particular area of interest and connect with other like-minded individuals.
