The Pioneer Club was organized on November 10, 1933. The purpose of the club was "social activities to help encourage the pioneer spirit in the future generations".

The first constitution of the club provided that the meetings be held the second Friday of each month at 2:30 p.m. Membership of the club required those who had lived in Fort Stockton 25 years prior to the organization of the club at the close of the year 1933 and their daughters and female descendants as they reached the age of 25 years.
