On March 11, 1920, over 240 women met at the Old Puritan House (now Blackburn Tavern). Maria Bray, a former Thacher Island lighthouse keeper and long-time advocate of women’s rights, was the oldest woman in Gloucester to cast a vote and became the first honorary member of the Club at age 93. The first elected president was Mrs. Charles Nauss.
