Chapter History

icon The Three Missions Chapter was organized with seventeen Organizing Members on October 14, 1993, during the administration of Mrs. John Kenneth Harrell, State Regent from 1991 to 1994. The inspiration for the formation of the chapter was the dedication of the DAR Centennial Park and Historic Marker on Highway 79, near Gause, Texas. The park was originally on land purchased by the Sarah McCalla Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, which was disbanded in the early 1960s. Sarah McCalla was based in the nearby city of Cameron and had existed for over 50 years.

icon The Centennial Park land originally purchased by the Sarah McCalla chapter had become landlocked when a new bridge was built over the Brazos River, and Highway 79 was moved approximately 1/4 mile from the original road site. The marker erected in the original park was moved to a new roadside park along with the historic marker for Nashville on the Brazos, which had existed in this area during the early colonization of Texas. The DAR Centennial Park marker was placed in the new park as well.

icon Three Missions Chapter celebrated its tenth anniversary in October of 2003 and we look forward to many more years of service in the community. Our members serve at the chapter, State, and National level, participating in many activities within the DAR. If you are interested in joining, or perhaps simply visiting, please let us know. We will be glad to see you!
