Los Alamos (Spanish: meaning "the cottonwoods") is a townsite located in Los Alamos County, and built upon four mesas of the Pajarito Plateau and the adjoining White Rock Canyon. We believe that Valle Grande is a particularly appropriate name, for our chapter as Los Alamos is located on tree-shrouded mesas that reach out from the beautiful Valle Grande Caldera in the Jemez Mountains to the west. Los Alamos is home to the world famous Los Alamos National Laboratory.
Our chapter was scheduled to be organized 12 April 1975 but Mother Nature had other ideas. That morning, we were deluged with 35 inches of snow, and, with the approval of NSDAR, the organizational meeting was postponed until 17 April. The organizing regent was Phyllis B. Norman with fourteen organizing members. Phyllis was our State Regent 1998-2000. We have consistently aimed toward fulfilling the creed of "God, Home, and Country." You are cordially invited to contact us for membership information.
WHAT WE DO:
For more than a century, the members of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution have dedicated themselves to historical preservation, promotion of education, and encouragement of patriotic endeavor. These goals are as relevant in today's society as they were when the organization was founded in 1890.
