Note:

This picture of the Ariel Club was made in 1904 in front of the home of it then president, Mrs. John C. Coit, West Oak Street. It was sent to the World's Fair in St. Louis and hung in the women's division of the star-shaped State of Texas Building in 1904-05.

The Ariel Club, the first women's study group organized in Denton and still existent, was organized in 1891. It was a charter member of the Texas Federation of Women's Clubs, which observed its 50th year in Hillsboro the last week of March. It was organized in Denton, too.
