History

Developed from a "Chataqua Circle" in the early 1890s by a group of young men and women. The circle disbanded in 1892 and the women formed the "Afternoon Literary Club." The official date of organization was 1893. In November 1896 the name was changed to the Elective Club with the word "Study" added a few years later. Programs of study covered a variety of topics. The club assisted in many civic and war projects. Its members have contributed much to the philanthropic, civic, and social life of the community.
