Whitewater Federation of Women’s Clubs Records
Archives & Area Research Center, 1st floor
The Whitewater Federation of Women’s Clubs began in January 1899 as a way to bring together local organizations, including the Alpha, Emerson, Junto, Minneiska, and Home Culture clubs. The purpose of this collaboration was to increase communication and have ‘mutual helpfulness’ to create a ‘betterment of our city.’ The Federation focuses on charitable initiatives that support the community.
Recent additions to the collection include yearbooks and scrapbooks that document the history of the various clubs under the umbrella of the Whitewater Federation of Women’s Clubs. Stop by the Archives to these unique items and to learn more about the history of the Federation.
