Our timeless venue is a perfect fit for your event
The San Jose Woman's Club Landmark historic venue, number 32 on the Historic Register, is the ideal place for your special event. The 1929 California Mission Revival style structure was built for the SJWC and designed by the notable architectural firm of Wolfe & Higgins. It includes many tiled features created by famed ceramicist Albert Solon. The Historic Venue provides in-kind donation of lowered cost rental of the SJWC to local community and arts groups for fund-raising events, performances and meetings. The Historic Venue is also available for rental to individuals and for-profit organizations.

Preserving Our Unique Historical Venue
San Jose Woman’s Club is fortunate to have its landmark historical venue. Over the years, many woman’s clubs sold their historic venues because they could not afford building maintenance. The San Jose Woman’s Club is one of the largest remaining woman’s club structures in Northern California. In the last ten years, many repairs have been made to improve the venue and bring it into the twenty-first century including adding a new electrical transformer, replacement of the kitchen flooring, and the addition of a security system.
