Austin Women's Club

From the Statesman:
The Austin Women’s Club building downtown was named to preservation Texas’ annual list of most endangered historic places in the state, officials with the nonprofit group said today.

The building, which was built in 1874 at 710 San Antonio St., suffers from deterioration and antiquated infrastructure,” according to a statement from the group.

“The members of the Austin Woman’s Club, like members of many other civic organizations, struggle to preserve their historic headquarters while continuing their history of serving the community,” Preservation Texas President Susan Lassell said in a statement. “This … structure with its strong
ties to Austin’s political and cultural growth merits community support.”
