The Minerva Club is one of the oldest, continuously operating women's clubs in California. It was founded on October 5, 1894 by 25 pioneer women. In 1928, Julia Morgan (the architect of Hearst Castle) designed our clubhouse which was built on the corner of Boone and Lincoln. In 1984, it was listed on the National Register of Historic Places. In 2007, the city of Santa Maria recognized it as a National Landmark.
Today, the Club holds two general meetings a month along with other events for our members. We continue to work for the community - an effort started in 1894 - by holding fund raisers for local charities and each year we award scholarships to needy high school seniors. Some events are open to the public.
NOTE: Bridge and Games, held the second Tuesday of each month, is now OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.
Coffee and dessert are served and the cost for non-members is $6.00
