History

J.P Morgan is the founder of the Bar Harbor Club and construction began in 1929 after the stock market crash. Upon its opening in 1930, it hosted the most spectacular ball that had ever been witnessed in the area. Among the guests that used to escape here on vacation were John D. Rockefeller Jr. and Joseph Pulitzer. The venue was also the location of dances, competitions, exhibitions, costume balls, and other social events. From the 1980s to 2009, the property was closed, until being fully refurbished and opened in its current state.
