Womans Club of El Paso

The Woman’s Club of El Paso has been a vital force in our community for well over a century. Anchored in their historic clubhouse on Mesa St., the non-profit organization meets monthly to offer educational and cultural opportunities for the enjoyment of their members. The exhibit, created by the Between Design Firm, celebrates the 100th anniversary of the clubhouse and many of the organization’s achievements. It features several artifacts from the Woman’s Club’s private collection along with artifacts from the museum’s collection.
