Texas Federation of Women's Clubs

2312 San Gabriel Street, Austin, TX   78705

Also known as “The Fed”, the Austin Swing Syndicate has held dances here every Thursday since 1999. This is considered the home of Austin swing dancing. New people learn to swing dance here every week at lessons taught by instructors from Four on the Floor and Go Dance.

We owe this opportunity to dance in the grand ballroom to a group of industrious ladies called The Texas Federation of Women’s Clubs. This group started in Waco, TX in 1897 as a literary club. Their interests expanded to include women’s issues, education, charity and preservation.

Henry Coke Knight, a Dallas architect, designed and built the mansion in 1931. It’s one of the best examples of Georgian Revival architecture in Texas. Duke Ellington played a concert at the Fed on April 19, 1941.
