Desert Wells Chapter

Queen Creek, Arizona

National Society of the Daughters of American Revolution

The Desert Wells Chapter was organized in December 2005. We are a growing and very active chapter which meets in Queen Creek, Arizona. We are named after the old Desert Wells Stage Stop located on the former Andrade Ranch in Queen Creek, owned and maintained by the San Tan Historical Society. It was a small spur stop that holds a significant role in Queen Creek's history and folklore, and is treasured by the community. See our "History" page to learn more about stage coaches and their role in Queen Creek history.

We customarily meet from September through May on the third Saturday of the month. Visitors are always welcome! Please contact Linda Enz for more detailed information on membership requirements and application instructions.

Who We Are

Our members come from Queen Creek, Florence, Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert, and San Tan Valley. We are a variety of women with a variety of lifestyles. We range in age from late teens to our 80s! We arrive on motorcycles, in pickup trucks, SUVs, and hybrid cars. We are professional women, students, stay-at-home moms, grandmas, single parents, and retired military wives. We'll be here in casual attire, and in dresses. Some of our mothers and grandmothers have been in the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) for generations while some of us are just starting out. We may be different in many ways, but we all believe in the basic premises of supporting Education, History, and Patriotism.
