Our Chapter meets the first Saturday morning of each month at 10 a.m.

On March 27, 1976, the first meeting to organize the chapter was held at the Nassau Bay Hotel with 25 area ladies in attendance. Mrs. Frances Henry, State Organizing Secretary, from College Station, TX, presided.

The Sam Houston Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution was officially installed as a Bicentennial chapter on Friday, June 11, 1976, in ceremonies held at the Wagon Wheel Restaurant in Nassau Bay. Mrs. Jerry W. Terrell was Organizing Regent. Thirty-five area women became members. Mrs. Robert H. Parkinson, Texas State Organizing Secretary; Mrs. Percy E. Gentle, State Chaplain; and Mrs. Mary Pearl Etzil, State Chairman, District V, inducted the new members and installed the first chapter officers.

The 1976-77 chapter yearbook reads, "With pride and dignity, we have chosen a name for our chapter that means much to every member. We not only live in the shadow of the great monument erected in General Houston and his men's honor, but most of us live on land that was the battlefield in which the decisive battle for our independence from Mexico was won."
