Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Pittsburgh, PA

The site of the church that served as venue for Mark Twain and George W. Cable is now the location of the Duquesne Club. The church was sold to the Duquesne Club in 1886. The church bought a lot on the corner of Wylie Ave. and Congress in 1888. (History of Allegheny County, Pennsylvania Vol I 1889).
The Club building was built in 1887 and opened in 1890 [ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Duquesne_Club ]
