Our Story

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution was founded in 1890. The objective of the founding members of DAR was to establish an organization to "perpetuate the memory and spirit of the women and men who achieved American independence". Ellen Lovell Crosby, the great-great-granddaughter of Colonel Fielding Lewis and Betty Washington, was an Organizing Regent for the NSDAR. Mrs. Crosby founded the Fielding Lewis Chapter, NSDAR with seventeen charter members on April 12, 1904. Mrs. Crosby held the first meeting at her home, Forest Hill, in Marietta, Georgia.

Today, the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution is one of the largest female societies in the United States. The NSDAR is headquartered in Washington, D.C. NSDAR's national headquarters encompasses an entire city block and is one of the world’s largest buildings of its kind owned and maintained exclusively by women. The Fielding Lewis Chapter, NSDAR is one of the largest chapters in the state of Georgia. Our chapter works tirelessly to uphold the mission of NSDAR, with over 28 committees with opportunities for all members to serve. Chapter meetings are held once a month, from September to May, on Wednesdays.
