White Plains Chapter

National Society
Daughters of the American Revolution

White Plains, New York

The White Plains Chapter, NSDAR, was organized November 7, 1905, in White Plains, New York. The White Plains Chapter's name commemorates the October 28, 1776, Battle of White Plains when Washington's Revolutionary troops halted the British campaign to isolate New England from the lower colonies.

The chapter's main objectives of historic preservation, patriotism, and education are fulfilled through patriotic works that celebrate and honor our patriot ancestors.

Our works include:
- Award scholarships to White Plains High School seniors who demonstrate patriotic qualities.

- Promote patriotism through local parades, events, and wreath laying in the historic Rural Cemetery for veterans of all wars.

- Welcome new U.S. citizens at federal naturalization ceremonies with information about their new country and its flag.

- Provide stipends to U.S. Armed Forces veterans who reside in Westchester County and are enrolled as a student in an accredited Westchester institution

Highlights of our year include: recognized as New York State, District IX,  Most Outstanding Chapter at state conference, a successful fall luncheon at the American Yacht Club with Leigh Keno, Evacuation Day at Fraunces Tavern, and support for historic mile marker preservation.

We feel our patriot ancestors would be proud of our activities that further patriotism in this modern era.
