WELCOME!!


Tuesday, 17 April 1964, at seven o'clock in the morning, fifteen Organizing Members of Peter Puget Chapter, NSDAR met to complete their organizational procedure.  This day coincided with the first day of the 73rd Continental Congress which was meeting in Washington, DC.  As of 2007, the chapter has 60 members. 

The chapter name of Peter Puget was chosen in honor of 2nd Lieutenant Peter Puget, the second officer on board the HMS Discovery, commanded by Captain George Vancouver (1757-1798).  In May of 1792, while on a four year voyage around the world, they sailed through the Straits of Juan de Fuca to discover a sea in the forest.  Lt  Puget was assigned the job of exploring and surveying the shorelines of this inland sea.  Subsequently Capt Vancouver named this sea Puget Sound to commemorate Puget's dedication to duty and outstanding work.  Lt  Puget rose to the rank of Rear Admiral before his death in 1822. 

Shortly after Peter Puget chapter was organized, the burial site of Admiral Puget was discovered in a small country churchyard in Woolley, a suburb of Bath, Somerset, England. 

We hope that you will take time to visit our website and learn a bit about us and DAR. Inquiries and comments are always welcome!
