Collection Overview

Biography / History
The Woman's Club of Central Kentucky was established in November 1894 in Lexington, Kentucky, just after the formation of the Kentucky Federation of Women's Clubs in summer 1894. Counties represented include Bourbon, Boyle, Casey, Clark, Fayette, Jessamine, Madison, Mercer, Montgomery, Scott, and Woodford. Today its headquarters are located at 210 North Broadway in Lexington. The organization's mission is to further the educational and cultural life of the community and to broaden the outlook of the women of central Kentucky by keeping them informed on matters of national and international scope. The Club was active in establishing Lexington's free public library in 1898, in public school reform, and in woman's suffrage in local school elections. Two of the Club's main programs are the monthly Club Day and the Annual Style Show.
