Rock Hill, South Carolina

Organized:  January 22, 1898
Organizing Regent:  Eliza F. William Buist

Regent:  Eva Matson



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 one hundred years, the Catawba Chapter, NSDAR, has been actively involved in the Rock Hil 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.  Chapter members also planted holly bushes in Glencairn Garden in honor of George Washington's 250th birthday.   Flags have been donated to schools and firehouses; and members have remained 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.



The DAR gives members an opportunity for service in many areas.  It is a way to join with others in trying to make America a better place to live.  It offers the opportunity to work with the youth of this country through the educational programs.  The DAR encourages citizens to become active in the community, to assist with historic preservation, and to help preserve documents and records of the past.  It offers an opportunity to meet people with similar interest, develop friendships, and to join others who cherish the priceless heritage enjoyed by all; while promoting the ideals of patriotism and love of country.
