Tally Ho Coaching Clubs became a popular sport and recreation activity among the wealthy in the U.S. in the late 1800s and into the early 20th century. With its origins in Europe, more specifically Britain, a Tally Ho Coach consisted of large and luxurious horse carriage, drawn by two or more large horses. This type of carriage traveled with great speed and comfort. The clubs set-up coach routes between major cities or between prominent neighborhoods, hotels, social clubs and business areas in major cities. The sport was highly expensive for both traveler and sport enthusiasts, who took in part in actually maintaining and driving the coaches.
The Minneapolis (Tally Ho) Coaching Club started in 1889. Its offices or structure included President, Vice President, Treasurer, Secretary, and Executive Committee. All members were shareholders in the club, and were prominent leaders in the Minneapolis area.
