Marker Text Starting in 1944, several women’s organizations met to coordinate their community improvement efforts. In February 1945, 22 groups became charter members of the Lubbock women’s club. After meeting at members’ homes, Texas Technological College and other sites, the club bought the former plains funeral home building as their headquarters in 1949. Built in 1941 by contractor J. J. McLoen, the two-story, brick veneer building has a full-façade porch and Doric columns. The club has made additions as it has grown, holding its own functions, hosting other events and serving its neighbors and community.
