Scope and content

Founded in 1912, the Coco Plum Woman's Club is one of the oldest community service organizations in Dade County and a long-standing member of the General Federation of Women's Clubs (GFWC), and this collection documents their commitment over the past century to making improvements and enriching local neighborhoods through vigorous fundraising and other various projects, such as implementing a library that remained open for 56 years and aiding war efforts during World War I and World War II . Their clubhouse on Sunset Road is now a government-designated historical landmark in order to preserve the rich history of the club and to honor their dedication to improving the community at large. Contents within the collection include newspaper clippings, photographs, legal documents, ephemera, scrapbooks, and other miscellaneous documents pertaining to the club's activities since its inception.
