Welcome to the Manhattan Chapter, NSDAR, website. 

On October 11, 1890, the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution was founded by four remarkable women:  Mary Desha, Mary S. Lockwood, Ellen Harden Walworth, and Eugenia Washington.  Eight years later, on November 4, 1898, Manhattan Chapter was organized by twelve New York women, including Mrs. Daisy Allen Story, who served as chapter regent 1905-1908, State Regent 1908-1919, and national President General from 1913-1917.  More complete details of the chapter are in the book by Esther Ford Wait titled, "History of Manhattan Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, New York, NY, 1898-1936."

One of the fastest growing DAR chapters in NY State, Manhattan has 55 members and meets on the second Wednesday of the month, from October to December, and February to June, at 11:30 a.m.  In addition, brunch meetings are also held on the first Satruday during these months at 11:00 a.m.
