Historical Name Reference
The club's name comes from the early days of Naperville's first tavern and hotel. In the 1850s, the cost for a night's lodging at the Pre-Emption House, plus breakfast, feed for your horse and a shot of whiskey, would cost a weary traveler only 35 cents. The Pre-Emption House once stood where Sullivan’s Steakhouse is today.
