Cypress Club

The Cypress Club was established in 1903 by Medicine Hat’s ranching and business communities. Patterned on the private clubs of Victorian Britain, the Club’s goal was to provide a centre for fellowship and socializing.

In the early years of the century, the West was quickly filling with commerce and manufacturing to serve the rapidly agricultural base. Although Medicine Hat was at that time still within what was known as the North West Territories inside Canada, it already becoming an important trade and service centre.

Within four years of its founding the Club moved into its current home, a gracious two story building of characteristic brick and sandstone design. The interior retains it’s turn-of-the-century decor and features a beautiful stained glass window illuminating the stairway. Various pieces of art and historical significance create a comfortable western ambiance.

Located in historic downtown Medicine Hat and on the Alberta Register of Historic Places, the Cypress Club has been a gathering place to almost all the regions civic leaders and prominent business people, making it a bastion for business and social leaders in the community.

Our current members are employers, influencers, neighbours, and friends. Anyone that has interested in being part of history and maintaining this unique historical asset can join the Cypress Club as a member. The public is welcome to visit our historical establishment and book our facility for private functions. Together, we are very proud to honour the past and help shape the future of Medicine Hat.
