Happenings at the Portland Women's Club Clubhouse
The Clubhouse Hosted PWC Business and Public Events
Dilg explains how the clubhouse for the Portland Women's Club (PWC), built in 1922, served many purposes for the organization. Most notably, the clubhouse served as the place for PWC officers and members to conduct club business. Other times, lectures and entertainment open to the public, were held here as well.
