The Woman's Club, Richmond VA - Respectfully Provocative since 1894

In 1894, fourteen Richmond women came together in the parlor of Jane Crawford Looney Lewis’s home on West Franklin Street. By the time they left, they had established a literary and cultural association designed for “the delightful friction of well-trained minds.” The Woman’s Club continues this tradition today, now on East Franklin Street, with over 1,500 members.


A one-of-a-kind venue for once-in-a-lifetime events

The Bolling Haxall House, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is an ideal setting for weddings, receptions, luncheons and meetings. Generations of brides have descended the grand, circular staircase. Business leaders have made historical decisions in the elegant boardroom. And countless revelers from around the globe have danced the night away in a house that was built to be celebrated.
