Our Historic Backdrop

With it’s massive urban garden, the historic Pennsylvania Society of Colonial Dames mansion is a hidden gem right in the heart of the city. 

The History Behind the Women Making History Awards and Celebration 


In 2016, Philadelphia played host to the Democratic National Convention, where for the first time in history, a woman received a nomination for president of the United States. And of all cities- it happened right here in the birthplace of America herself.

Against this historic backdrop, which highlighted a woman, The Walnut Club felt it presented the perfect opportunity to bring together women from across the region to celebrate their own history-making accomplishments.

Nine trailblazing women were chosen as recipients of our 1st ever “Women Making History” awards & celebration.  These women have reached the pinnacles of their careers, representing all areas of business, media, arts and science.
Since our first award ceremony was so well-received, it has become the Club’s highly-sought after
signature event.
