Welcome to Narcissa Whitman Chapter!
We are an organization whose history is written into the chronicles of Yakima and Yakima County. Narcissa Whitman Chapter was established on June 19, 1909, by twenty-one women of the Yakima area who were eligible for membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution.
We have steadfastly upheld the ideals upon which this country is built; fostering patriotism, working to preserve Americanism, marking historic spots, promoting the study of American history and ideals by young people, and helping newly naturalized citizens to understand these ideals.
We meet the third Saturday of the month, September - June. We hope that you will take time to visit our pages and learn a bit about us and DAR. Inquiries and comments are always welcome!
Contact Lesli for further information about our chapter.
