Administrative history

The Provo Women's Club House (1925-1933) was a meetingplace for women's associations in Provo, Utah.

The Provo Women's Club House was to be the meetingplace of members from three local clubs that regularly used the Club House: The Municipal Council, Nineteenth Century Club, and Sorosis Club. It began that function in April 1925, when the building was given the name of the Provo Women's Club House. Representatives of each of the patron clubs were selected to form an Executive Board and Board of Control, created in May 1925. The Board of Control directed the use of the Club House, oversaw building maintenance, and was responsible for raising the necessary funds to preserve possession of the building.

In May 1933 the Nineteenth Century Club withdrew from patrial ownership and participation in the Club House. The records end abruptly in October 1933, following discussion of closing the Club House for the winter months because of continued indebtedness and the cost of heating the building.
