White Plains Chapter
Daughters of the American Revolution
White Plains, New York
The White Plains Chapter, NSDAR, was chartered 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 excellence in American History and Civic Involvement.
- 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.
- Participate in the Wreaths Across America ceremony organized by the Westchester Cadet Squadron 1, Civil Air Patrol at St. Paul's Church National Historic Site.
We feel our patriot ancestors would be proud of our activities that further patriotism in this modern era.
