The Homemaker's Club records contain membership cards and a program from the 1955 state homemaking conference, in addition to club yearbooks, 1954-1983, which document the annual activities of the club and contain lists of club members.

It is unclear exactly when the La Crosse Vocational Homemaker’s Club was formed, however mention of the group in La Crosse newspapers begins as early as April 1925. The club was affiliated with the La Crosse Vocational School. The club’s name was later changed along with the school’s to the Coleman Vocational Homemaker’s Club in 1963, and then to the Western Wisconsin Technical Institute Homemaker’s Club in 1968. The last known year of the club's existence was 1983.
