In the town of Warrenton in Fauquier County, you’ll find a small but energetic chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution.
Our chapter is named after Warrenton’s earlier name, Fauquier Court House. We were chartered in April of 1982 and celebrated our 40th Anniversary earlier this year.
We started with 40 members, and as of January 1st this year we achieved a milestone of 117 members.
Our chapter’s main projects are:
Supporting the feeding of children in poverty through Fauquier FISH (For Immediate Sympathetic Help);
Supporting veterans through providing food/hygienic supplies to the Veterans Clinic in Staunton;
Surveying/documenting/cleaning cemeteries with Revolutionary War patriots buried within them in Fauquier & Rappahannock Counties;
Working on establishing a Revolutionary War monument in Fauquier County; and
Providing the local community with an annual Genealogy Workshop that provides 8 classes, a guest luncheon speaker, personal genealogical advice, and lunch – all for free.
