Frederick Woman's Civic Club, Inc.

Frederick Woman's Civic Club was organized in 1911.  Throughout the years the club has been involved in many aspects of helping Frederick become a better place to live.  We are attributed with helping start the first library in Frederick, initiated kindergarten, cleaned up city streets, made pleas for parks and much more.  In 1962 we purchased The Historic Steiner House to prevent it from being demolished and a gas station built on the corner of Jefferson and West Patrick.  Through the work and effort of the club, the interior and exterior has been restored to its original form allowing the house to be shared with the public on specific dates and times as well as open for tours by appointments.  Historic Preservation is one of the many aspects that FWCC is involved with.  The club supports many programs and non-profit organizations in the Frederick area as well as awards a number of scholarships each year.  The Annual Mardi Gras helps to provide the revenue to complete the above mentioned.  Mardi Gras was started in 1961 to help purhase and preserve Historic Steiner House for posterity and has also enabled the club to benefit other causes.
