Belle Haven events boosts Historical Society

At the turn of the 20th century, casinos were most definitely not the glitzy haunts of high rollers and slot aficionados. Casinos, in fact, were often elegant centers of leisure and entertainment, where guests enjoyed billiards, lawn bowling, dining, dancing and more.

On Saturday, Nov. 10 at 7 p.m., guests at Casino Royale, a gala to benefit the Greenwich Historical Society, will step back in time to the era when Teddy Roosevelt led the country, Scott Joplin entertained it and The Greenwich Casino Association — now known as the Belle Haven Club — was founded.

The event is chaired by Rebecca Kirhoffer, Elizabeth Steel and Suzanne Frank.

According to Ms. Kirhoffer, “During that period, the Belle Haven Club was the hub of newly developed Belle Haven and was constantly abuzz with everything from weddings to tennis tournaments to regattas. We will celebrate this rich chapter in Greenwich’s history with entertainment, games and prizes, fabulous food and dancing.

The Historical Society will further mark the occasion by honoring the Belle Haven Club, one of the oldest in the county, with a Greenwich Landmark Site Recognition Award. We hope the community will, in turn, recognize the Historical Society’s ongoing contribution to history and arts education programs in our community and will support this important fundraising effort.”
