The Coral Gables Woman’s Club began in 1923 with its members consisting of homemakers and professionals of all ages from Miami-Dade and Broward counties. Commitment to making South Florida a better place to live by and helping other organizations with community projects is their common bond. The clubhouse which was built in 1937, is a one story limestone tile roof building with coral rock that was donated by the city of Coral Gables from their own limestone quarry and was built on city owned property and turned over to the Woman’s Club twenty years after it was built. It is listed as number nineteen on the list of historic landmarks in Coral Gables. Their community service programs include arts, education, conservation, home life, public issues, International outreach and communications and public relations.
