May 31, 1922, El Segundo women met at the City Hall to hear the reading of the laws and regulations of which they would adopt. On June 7, 1922, they met again to sign the constitution and Bylaws.
The club immediately began to take an interest in public affairs. Although the members discussed a city park, sewage disposal, a reception for teachers, Soldiers’ Bonds and a shelter to be erected by the railroad company at the train stop, their primary objective was the welfare of children.
On November 17, 1923, the Woman’s Civic and Improvement Club became the El Segundo Woman’s Club. Meetings were held in members’ homes and later at the local American Legion Hall. In time a lot at 541 Standard Street was purchased and later a building that had served as the first schoolhouse in El Segundo was purchased for one dollar. The building was moved onto the lot where the clubhouse still stands.
In May of 1937, the Native Daughters of the Golden West placed a bronze plaque on the exterior of the building and designated the clubhouse a California landmark.
The club is responsible for the lovely rose garden in Library Park. In 1997, in commemoration of 75 years, the club participated in the Chamber of Commerce Heritage Walk by purchasing a bench which was seen at the entrance to the Old Town Music Hall.
