History

The Woman's Club of Minneapolis was founded in March 1907 by and for women for the purpose of "education, civic and social service, study and friendly association." Its first president was Alice Ames Winter. The club initially met at private homes and public libraries. In 1908 it moved to Handicraft Guild, 89 Tenth Street South, Minneapolis. In 1913 it relocated again to 1526 Harmon Place, Minneapolis. During its first 20 years, the club accomplishments included organizing the first Parents and Teachers Association, and planning and financing free eyes clinics and medical inspections in schools. From 1914-1917 the club supported the War effort by contributing to French relief organizations and working with the Red Cross. By 1926 the club had grown to over 1000 members. Consequently in January 1926 an ambitious fundraising campaign to build new clubhouse began. Over $125,000 in subscriptions was raised. An additional $125,000 was raised by bonds. The club officially moved to 410 Oak Grove, Minneapolis on February 28, 1928. Prominent club members included Sister Elizabeth Kenny and Elizabeth Quinlan.

In 1976 the Woman's Club of Minneapolis sponsored the restoration of the 1848 Ard Godfrey House as a gift to the city of Minneapolis.
