"God, Home, and Country"

The Catawba Chapter, National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR), is the sixth chapter in the state to be organized. The name, Catawba, was adopted in recognition of friendly services rendered to the white settlers by the Catawba Indians.

Over the past 100 years, the Catawba Chapter, NSDAR, has been actively involved in the Rock Hill community, state of South Carolina, and on the national level. Historical places in the area, including the Upper Landsford Canal and Brattonsville, have been marked and dedicated. The chapter played a leading role in the selection of the Marsh Tacky as the state horse. Chapter members also planted holly bushes in Rock Hill's Glencairn Garden in honor of George Washington's 250th birthday. Flags have been donated to schools and firehouses. Members continue to remain actively involved with Tamassee DAR School.

Our meetings are educational, helpful, and fun. Contact us if you are interested in receiving a personal invitation to our next meeting.

Regent: Jane Massey
Registrar: Mary Bailey

Our heritage

The Catawba Chapter is located in York County, South Carolina, a pivotal area in the American Revolutionary War. In addition to being the home of the Catawba Indians, York County is the site of Historic Brattonsville, a plantation and Revolutionary War site of the Battle of Huck's Defeat.

York County also is the location of Kings Mountain State Park and Kings Mountain National Military Park, site of a battle that has been called the turning point of the Revolutionary War.

In neighboring Lancaster County is Andrew Jackson State Park, in honor of the United States president who was born near there. The Catawba Chapter DAR plays an active role in Arbor Day at Andrew Jackson State Park.
