petaluma woman’s club, please join us!
The Petaluma Woman’s Club (PWC) had its origins starting in 1895, and is immensely proud of its shared history with this scenic community we call home. Like Petaluma, PWC has gone through a long, varied growth pattern. Their 1913 craftsman style building at 518 B Street, designed by prominent architect Brainerd Jones (who is credited with designing many significant buildings in Petaluma) and is landmarked as a Heritage Home.
The Petaluma Woman’s Club can boast of countless filmed events that have dominated its spacious interiors as a major event center for over a century. Imagine the blinding, popping flash bulbs amidst laughter, tears, satin, lace, suits and ties that bind some of the Grand Ballroom activities recorded in countless, precious wedding albums. If walls could talk, the Petaluma Woman’s Club would vibrate in perpetuity, much like the city itself.
As integral as the building is to events, it’s also home away from home to a lively membership of community-minded, spirited women who meet regularly once a month, either day, evening, or both. Petaluma Woman’s Club members are a diverse group who share a commitment to the community and culture of Petaluma. For more than 10 decades, women have found friendship and camaraderie inside these doors. As society evolved, so did these women and they will continue to enjoy this place, and community into perpetuity.
Much like the beautiful, historical city of Petaluma, Petaluma Woman’s Club continues to grow and thrive with many memories and friendships. We are proud that the PWC is included in this remarkable piece of California history.
