On November 9, 1972, at a dinner at the historic Wortley Hotel in Lincoln, New Mexico, Sierra Blanca Chapter NSDAR was organized as the 16th chapter of the New Mexico Daughters of the American Revolution. The name Sierra Blanca was chosen because Sierra Blanca Peak dominates the landscape in the area, seeming to challenge all to reach for ever-higher goals.
