Founded in 1887, The Monday Club of Webster Groves is the oldest women's organization in Missouri and to quote Clarissa Start: "It (The Monday Club) was a quiet but powerful force for good in the 1920's and before then and since then.".
In 1897 a library for the city of Webster Groves was started at the corner of Gore and Lockwood.
During World War I, the members made garments and kit bags for soldiers and formed the first chapter of the Red Cross west of the Mississippi.
The building was designated a historic site by the St. Louis County Historic Building Commission in 1978.
Currently we host the annual "Paint Webster" day.
Our facility includes a studio for multiple artists, auditorium with stage and two Steinway Grand Pianos, sunny dining room. For information about joining, please contact Lee Wall: 314-729-0255 or email LWsuzy@att.net. We welcome all interested women. Current activities include paint instruction, music performance, a book club, and bridge.
As a philanthropic organization, our designated charity for 2017-2018 is Nurses for Newborns.
