United Daughters of the Confederacy ®
Colorado River Chapter 2655
Goldthwaite, Texas 

Chapter History

The name of the United Daughters of the Confederacy
"Colorado River Chapter" was established at the second 
organizational meeting held July 12, 2005 at the
Mills County Historical Museum in Goldthwaite, Texas.
Ladies from numerous historical organizations
in a five county area determined that the need for a 
chapter in this region was evident.  Prospective
members agreed that this name would most accurately
and inclusively describe the nature and location of our
new chapter given that the ladies that will comprise
the membership reside locally in five counties adjoining
                              the Colorado River. These include San Saba, Mills, Brown, Lampasas,                                                        and McCulloch counties.

The chapter chartered September 16, 2006 with 34 charter members.


The Objectives of this organization are 
Historical, Educational, Benevolent,
Memorial and Patriotic.

Membership Qualifications

Those eligible for membership are women, at least 16 years
of age, who are lineal or collateral descendants of men and
women who served honorably in the Confederate Army, Navy,
or Civil Service; or who gave Material Aid to the Cause.


Our Chapter meets each first Tuesday of the month.
 We meet most regularly at 6 p.m., Mills County Historical Museum on
1119 Fisher St. in Goldthwaite, TX.
  Email our chapter president for the next scheduled meeting time & program.
