The Franklin County Chapter NSDAR was organized on June 25, 1919 (chartered on October 20, 1920). Their first meeting was conducted at the Rocky Spring Church on September 30, 1919 with the speaker, Reverend William L. Mudge. In 1922, the chapter assumed stewardship and maintenance of the Rocky Spring Church and adjoining cemetery. The organization acquired ownership of the church from the Presbyterian Diocese in 2007 with only $1.00 as payment.
The Franklin County Chapter has actively pursued fulfillment of the mission of the NSDAR since our conception. Our chapter has completed many activities which the National Society advocates.
From our chapter, we provided a National Registrar, State Regent, state officers and many state chairmanships. We stand firm with our DAR motto,
