The Summer Social at The Shoreby is our annual summer soiree (co-hosted with Turnaround Management Association's Northern Ohio Chapter), held every summer at the historic Shoreby Club on the beautiful shores of Lake Erie. This sell-out event will be paired with an invitation-only DealSource event during the day for investment bankers and private equity participants.
Built in 1890 as the summer home of Samuel Mather, the lakefront mansion serves as the main clubhouse for this Member-owned Club. Designed by noted architect Charles Schweinfurth, the 25-room mansion was restored to its original grandeur and is now the social quarters of the Club.
Samuel and Flora Stone Mather were the owners until 1931. Samuel Mather was Senior Partner of Pickands, Mather & Company, an iron ore and Great Lakes shipping firm and a founding Director of U.S. Steel. From 1931 to 1990, there were approximately six subsequent owners. During prohibition, after the death of Mr. Mather, the new owners of Shoreby created a shoreline receiving spot for Canadian "deliveries" and lively parties.
