Women's Club, Bakersfield

Constructed in 1921, the Women's Club - an elegant and meticulously adorned building - was designed by architect Charles Howatt Biggar in the distinguished Colonial Revival style, exuding timeless sophistication and charm.

The Women's Club boasts a striking embayed portico entrance adorned with majestic Ionic columns, which serve as a grand welcome to visitors and passersby alike. Against the backdrop of the main structure's red brick facade, the white cornices add a touch of contrast and elegance, enhancing the building's visual appeal. Since its inception in 1896, the Women's Club has played a pivotal role in fostering a sense of community and empowerment among women, promoting participation in literature, art, and the sciences.

Despite undergoing minor alterations following the 1952 earthquake, the Women's Club remains a cherished historical and architectural landmark in Bakersfield.
