Welcome to the Redwood Forest Chapter DAR
Regent Melissa Brisso (Mrs. Paul) Welcomes You To Our Website
The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) is a non-profit, non-political volunteer service organization made up of approximately 175,000 members with 3,000 chapters. These chapters are located in all 50 states and in many countries around the world. On October 11, 1890, eighteen women met to officially organize the NSDAR for historic, educational, and patriotic purposes. Since that day, over 800,000 members have been admitted into membership.
Tucked away on the far northern coast of California, among the towering redwoods, is the small town of Eureka. Eureka and its surrounding area are home to the Redwood Forest Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. The Redwood Forest Chapter was officially organized on May 17, 1923. The first official meeting was held on October 14, 1923, when our first regent, Mrs. Bertha Murray presided. Three of the first Daughters were descendants of signers of the Declaration of Independence: Abraham Clark, William Emery, and John Adams.
