Welcome to GFWC Woman's Club of Fernandina Beach The Woman's Club of Fernandina Beach was organized in 1920 by twenty-seven ladies who met in the city library with the goal of doing everything possible to improve their city, educationally and physically. The Woman's Club of Fernandina Beach was born.
In January 1960, ground was broken for the new Club House on land which was donated by Mr. C. E Ward.
The completed building is in a perfect location, three blocks from the beach, where it sits amongst large
live oaks and colorful azaleas.
