One of several local women’s organizations of the period, the Redwood City Woman’s Club was the only women’s group that was not an auxiliary of a men’s lodge, and the only one to own its own building. The women were offered a lot in the new Dingee Park subdivision, with the proviso that they raise the funds to build a clubhouse. Built by local contractor Charles Miller, the 1911 clubhouse embodies the distinctive characteristics of the Craftsman style.
