Town & County Club
22 Woodland Street
Hartford, CT

 

A LITTLE HISTORY ABOUT THE CLUB

In 1925, just five years after women were granted the right to vote, a group of 400 progressive and determined women committed their resources to form Hartford’s first private women’s city club. They had three primary objectives: to provide an organized center for women’s work, thought and action; to advance the interests of women, and to promote science, literature and art. They bought the grand 1895 Theodore Lyman house at 22 Woodland Street, just around the corner from Mark Twain's home, and created an organized center for social, intellectual and artistic gatherings. Overall, it is simply charming, warm & friendly.
