The Mission’s Girls’ Club was a hive of activity by the 1930s.

Following the success of its club for boys, the Mission remodels its second floor to make space for the St. Paul Girls’ Club. With an entrance carefully separated from the boys, the new club offers a library, reading rooms, a playroom and a parlor. Here, the “Junior Girls’ Club” meets three times a week for music, crafts and religious training while the “Senior Business and Working Girls’ Club” gathers for supper and a fellowship meeting.
