The St. Paul Women's City Club is a 1931 Art Deco Streamline Moderne-style Mankato limestone clubhouse in Saint Paul, Minnesota, that was designed by architect Magnus Jemne (1882-1964). The building was designed to provide a "center for organized work and for social and intellectual intercourse", and provided a dining room, assembly rooms, dressing rooms, and bedrooms for the 1000 members of the club and their guests. The building was sold to the Minnesota Museum of Art in 1972 and now houses an architectural firm.[2] It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[3]
