MORE ABOUT THE FAIRMOUNT ROWING ASSOCATION:
Fairmount Rowing Association is an amateur rowing club, founded in 1877. The facility, located at #2 Boathouse Row, is on the National Register of Historic Places. 

The original building was built by Pacific Barge Club in 1858-59. Quaker City Barge Club bought half the house and built an addition, the current entrance, in 1875. The other half of the building was purchased by FRA. then torn down in 1904 and replaced with the current Flemish-bonded brick structure, designed by Walter Smedley. Fairmount purchased Quaker City in 1945 and connected the interior of the boathouses.

This boathouse originally catered to blue-collar youths living in the Fairmount neighborhood. In 1916, after decades of being rejected, the club was finally allowed to join the Schuylkill Navy. In recent years, the Club boasts being known as the "premiere club for Masters rowing in the mid-Atlantic region." The club holds a number of popular annual social events, and hosts the Quaker City Masters Regatta.
