New Century Club

Incorporated in 1879, the New Century Club sprang from the committee work of the 1876 Women’s Pavilion. One of the nation’s first women’s clubs, it described itself as a “centre of thought and action among women.” The club spotlighted issues important to women and children.

Unknown, by 1894
