Historical Marker: Matinee Musical Club, Rockdale, Milam County,TX
In January 1909, Mary Ann (Coffield) Perry organized
the Matinee Musical Club on the front porch of her
home at this site.  Pearl Cauthon served as the first
President of the Club, which met regularly to study
and perform music.  Yearbooks document annual themes,
including Classical music, and Texas Women and
American composers.  The 1916 Yearbook shows the Club
Mascot, George Sessions Perry, who became a noted
Texas writer.  The Group, active in both the Texas
and National Federations of Music Clubs, continues to
share and study music, bringing culture and art to
its members and to Rockdale through annual programs
and regular meetings.
