The Woman's Club originally convened at the home of M.V. Brown, its president. It was reorganized in 1921 "as a non-sectarian and non-political organization, where women in Thompson Falls 'can come and discuss issues and measures with the purpose of benefitting every man, woman and child in the community.' Together with other organizations the club organized a child welfare clinic in 1922. It helped organize a community bathhouse, a community swimming pool, and the Sanders County Historical Library.
