The Chipley Woman’s Club was founded in 1921 as an offshoot of the School Improvement Association.  On March 24, 1921, a unanimous vote was taken to this effect and the new club was named the Chipley Woman’s Club.  The club was composed of six committees:  Education, Civics, Public Health, Good Roads, Philanthropy, and the Arts.  In 1929 the decision was made to incorporate the club and the club charter was signed by 80 members.  The club is Chipley’s oldest civic club.
