The Stewartville Women's Institute was a branch of the Renfrew South District. It was organized in April 1949. The Stewart branch amalgamated with Arnprior in 2002 to become the Arnprior-Stewartville branch. In 2008 this branch disbanded with members joining the White Lake branch. The Stewartville W.I. dedicated its efforts in many areas such as child welfare, health, libraries, playgrounds, cooking and sewing.
