On May 18, 1893, Amy Barnes Maynard invited 11 women to meet at her home to discuss the idea of a club for women that would “foster the interests of its members in literary, scientific, musical, historical and other topics of vital importance; to promote culture and cordial personal relations among women; and to contribute to the welfare of the community.”
This club, known as the Amherst Woman’s Club, will celebrate its 125th anniversary in 2018.
