ABOUT THE MUSKEGON WOMAN’S CLUB:

The Muskegon Woman’s Club began in October of 1890 in a private home. Thirty charter members, determined to make a difference for themselves and their community, joined hands to improve the lives of all women. Among their accomplishments is the establishment of the first area Well Baby Clinic, a resolution to support Women’s Suffrage and to clothe the poor of Muskegon County.

The brightest and best joined the Club, not to be exclusive, but to be inclusive; to cultivate and celebrate the intelligence, talents, and wisdom of Muskegon’s women. Many locally famous names appear on our roster. All worked tirelessly for the betterment of the lives of the women and children in our community, our county, and our state.

An active and integral part of the Muskegon Woman’s Club was the Junior Department, later known as the Civic Department. This division of the Club was organized in 1919 and disbanded in 1986. This influential branch was created for the young, unmarried women of the Woman’s Club.

In 1961, the Muskegon Heights Woman’s Club, which was organized in 1925, merged with the Muskegon Woman’s Club to form the Greater Muskegon Woman’s Club, and so the legacy continues to this day. Women (and men) of all walks of life congregate at the club, striving to do what our ancestors did by leading the way with philanthropy, education, literature, artistic and scientific culture, as interpreted and implemented by long-established policy.
