Welcome to Martha Washington Chapter, NSDAR

The Martha Washington Chapter, NSDAR, is a part of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) which is a non-profit, non-political, volunteer women's service organization. It is our pleasure to welcome you to our website.

The Martha Washington Chapter, NSDAR, was organized with 15 members on February 22, 1896. Mrs. Anna Mosely Bissel visited Virginia in 1895 and when she returned to Sioux City, she became the first chapter regent. The chapter charter was framed and hangs in the city library. The second regent was Miss Susanna Ware and she was the first member to represent the chapter at Continental Congress. She gave the chapter a gavel carved from a chestnut tree that was on George Washington's estate, Mount Vernon.

Over the years, Martha Washington Chapter, NSDAR, has supported local history preservation, education, and patriotic endeavors.
