The Century Association is a New York Citymarker club with a distinguished history.

Established in 1847 as a club of "authors, artists, and amateurs of letters and the fine arts," the Century's early members included editor/poet William Cullen Bryant and painters Asher Durand, Winslow Homer, and John Frederick Kensett, architect Stanford White, judge Charles Patrick Daly. The Century evolved from an earlier organization, the Sketch Club, founded by Bryant and his friends in 1829.

The Century possesses a notable art collection, including important works by Asher Durand, Thomas Cole, Thomas Doughty, and other Hudson River School painters. It is also an important venue for the exhibition of contemporary art created by its members.

In 1989, after a strenuous legal battle, the club began admitting women members.

Located on West 43rd Street since 1891, the Century occupies a club house designed by Stanford White.
