Cincinnati Woman's Club

Founded in 1897, the Cincinnati Woman’s Club is an organization created to promote social, educational, and artistic growth in the community. Among some of the successes of the club are the introduction of the 1904 antismoke ordinance in the city created to fight pollution, the introduction of playgrounds in the community, and penny lunches.

Their original building was located on Oak Street but was torn down in the 1960’s to make way for Interstate 71. The organization is now on Lafayette Avenue and still has the mission of civic betterment through volunteering and philanthropy. Their Philanthropic Endowment Fund makes grants to a variety of charities throughout the year.
