The Beginning of the Venetian Club....It all started in the year 1910 when a few of the fellows gathered in Anthony Turcato's cellar at 1134 Seldon Street in Rockford, Illinois and rehearsed for their band. They laughed, toasted moonshine and echoed stories of the past. They outgrew the cellar shortly thereafter; expansion was necessary. In 1917, and 68 founders later, they rented the auditorium upstairs from Ingrassia Hardware. Eight years later, in 1926, the membership rocketed to almost 300 members. The plans for the Sanford Street location went into effect and the budget was agreed upon for the $28,000 structure. The Venetian Club is proud to have been a part of the Rockford Community for more than 100 years! Read More about our History...
