“The Montclair Women’s Cultural Arts Club was a cultural center in Montclair/Oakland which I owned and operated from 1996 through 2017. In 1996 I purchased the Montclair Club from a group of older women who had owned it since the mid-20′s. I had done some research on the building and learned that originally it had been built in the late 1880′s by a group of local men as a hunting lodge. Around the early 40′s when women got the right to vote, the Club became a Women’s Club. When I bought the building I discussed the history of the Club with a few of the elder women members. I said, “So what happened, when women got the vote, you all spoke to your husbands and let them know that you would be taking over the building and converting it to a Women’s Club?” A few of them chuckled.

The Montclair Club became a contemporary women’s club open to everyone with a very busy schedule of monthly concerts, brunches, afternoon teas, Open Mic performances, classes for dance, exercise, children’s activities, psychic workshops, lectures, memorials, political gatherings and many weddings. We booked performers from all over the country, Canada, Central America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
