Collection Historical Note

The Nacogdoches Chapter of the Texas Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution was organized in 1926 by Mrs. Mabel Lott Barham. Since then, the chapter has been involved in numerous projects relating to conservation, education, patriotism, and historic restoration. In 1936 the chapter assisted in a dedication of the Old Stone Fort, an authentic replica located at Stephen F. Austin State University. In the 1960's microfilm records were placed in the East Texas Research Center. The DAR continues to actively donate material to the East Texas Research Center.
