Woman's Club Of El Paso - 1952

The Woman's Club Of El Paso is located at 1400 North Mesa Street, El Paso, Texas. Even though these women may not have realized it, they were part of a nation-wide movement which heralded changing roles for women in society, one which altered the notion that “a woman’s place is in the home.” The story of the Woman’s Club, truly reflects, “Never underestimate the power of a woman.” http://wcoep.org/history/

Woman's Club Of El Paso - 1948

Members and past presidents of the Woman's Club of El Paso. The Woman's Club Of El Paso is located at 1400 North Mesa Street, El Paso, TX, 79902. These women were determined to bring culture and the arts to this wild and wooly town. They were movers and shakers in the community, determined to improve educational opportunities, beautify the city, and bring the finer aspects of life to a border town. They established the first kindergarten in the public schools in Texas, they paid for the first PE teacher in the high school, and they worked diligently for the pure food laws, city sanitation, food inspections, weed eradication, and preservation of San Jacinto Plaza. They sponsored, installed and maintained soup kitchens in the schools during the depression to feed undernourished children. During World War II they sold war bonds, housed the Red Cross and Surgical Dressing Unit, and loaned the clubhouse for all war bond rallies, free of charge. They held the first art show, first flower show and first fashion show in the city. http://wcoep.org/history/

Woman's Club of El Paso

Located at 1400 N. Mesa Ave, this building houses the El Paso Women's Club. Designed by Otto H. Thorman and built by H. G. Ponsford in 1916, it was named to the National Register of Historic Places in the 1970s. The Women's Club itself started in 1894. The intention of the women was to bring culture and the arts to this wild and wooly town. For example, they fought for the pure food laws, city sanitation and they maintained soup kitchens during the Great Depression. They held the first art show, first flower show and first fashion show in the city. Today, the Club still exists and dedicates its work to the preservation of the historic Clubhouse, the improvement of conditions for women and the enhancement of the quality of life in its community.
