The Adelphian Club

Adelphian Club PostcardThe Adelphian Club of Alameda, California was established in 1897, their goal being “the promotion of study among women.” Their once sizable membership has dwindled over the years, and it appears their days are numbered as only twenty members remain. Their history of charitable contributions included the $380,000 received from the 2002 sale of this club house, as the entire amount was donated to local schools.
