This house was the last headquarters of the Virginia
State Federation of Colored Women's Clubs, organized
In 1907 by educator and social reformer Janie Porter
Barrett and other women who attended the annual
Hampton Negro Conference. The Federation fostered
cooperation among the states many African American
women's clubs, which had emerged late in the 19th
century to address the needs of women and children
and to improve education, health care, home life,
and economic opportunity. In 1915 the Federation
opened the Industrial Home School for Colored Girls,
a rehabilitation center in Hanover County for girls
in legal trouble.
