The San Josť Woman's Club has been a formal organization since 1894, when nine women first gathered to discuss forming an alliance. At that time, women across the nation were forming clubs to study and discuss various topics of importance.
Early meetings were held in member's homes, but by 1902 there were 81 members. The first club home was purchased in 1906 and was located at 43 South 3rd Street in San Josť.
Membership grew; the site for a new clubhouse was purchased and a new building was completed in 1929. The mortgage for this building was satisfied in 1946 and the mortgage was then ceremoniously burned.
In 1986 the building was declared San Josť Landmark #32. The San Josť Woman's Club honored its 100th anniversary with a celebration in 1994, and the organization continues to serve women and the community in the new millennium.
In past decades, the building was available only by the referral of a club member, but today the doors are open to the general public with advance reservation.
