Located in downtown Murfreesboro, Tennessee, one block from the Public Square, stands the stately and classic clubhouse of The Woman's Club of Murfreesboro.
This pre-Civil War house is an example of Italianate architecture that was popular from 1840-1885. One of the few remaining houses in the downtown area built in this romantic Renaissance style, it was later modified with a wrap around porch and entrance.
The house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places in the North Maney Avenue Historic Overlay District, and recognized by the Association for the Preservation of Tennessee Antiquities.
Upon entering, the visitor immediately notices the elegant scale and proportions of this historic home. The rooms have sixteen foot high ceilings and beautiful embellished crown molding and ceiling medallions. The antique furnishings are donations from many club members.
The Woman's Club is a long standing tradition in our community. We want to share our club with you! Let us tell you our story, answer your questions and invite you to join us to experience our monthly activities, luncheons or Ladies Night Out events.
The building provides an inviting venue for meetings, birthday parties, weddings, showers, receptions, luncheons, portrait setting and various other activities. The facility is available for rent to members, non-members and non-profits. Catering is available by our well-known local caterer.
In 2016, State Senator Bill Ketron presented the State of Tennessee Senate Resolution to the club officers.
"Be it resolved, that we honor The Woman's Club of Murfreesboro upon its 100th anniversary and applaud its members, both past and present, on their century of contributions to their community and the State of Tennessee."
