Allenberry "on the Yellow Breeches" was purchased in the summer of 1944 by Charles A. B. and Mary Lu Heinze. The original limestone barns were converted to food service facilities and a lodge and opened as Allenberry Inn in 1946. The Allenberry Playhouse opened in 1949. Several guest cottages were added until the Meadow Lodge was built. At that time a new outdoor swimming pool was added to the property and gave birth to the idea of a Social Club. Two Har-Tru clay tennis courts were constructed in 1969 and two more courts were added in 1971 with lighting for night play making Allenberry one of the most desirable tennis playing facilities in Central Pennsylvania.
The purposes of the Allenberry Club are to promote sociability and maintain the highest standards of congeniality, and to provide for its members entertainment, healthful recreation and facilities of the finest type in the Cumberland Valley.
