Who we are and what we do.
We are a group of women committed to a vision of historic preservation in our community, and positive impact in our personal lives. Our organization currently pledges at least $4,000 annually towards the preservation of North-Evans Chateau, a historical Austin Landmark.
As for our history, we were established by the Austin Woman's Club in 1939 to assist in supporting preservation efforts of the Chateau Bellevue and to serve as a place for young women to gather. Our members are between the ages of 21-55 with a variety of professional backgrounds. Our activities and events will always support our vision through nurturing the intellectual, cultural and personal growth of our members. We have many public and exclusive events such as luncheons, fundraisers, happy hours and unofficial events.
