Chapter Motto: “Honored be our ancestors of any clime and age, and may the Pilgrims’ freedom be our lasting heritage.”
The Orlando Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, received its charter on December 15, 1906, making the Orlando Chapter the fourth oldest chapter in the state of Florida. Carrie Packard Schuller was the Orlando Chapter’s organizing regent, along with 12 organizing members. Mrs. Schuller was the 1909-1911 DAR Florida State Society vice regent and a member of the National Society’s Officer’s Association. Another charter member was Emilie J. Temple, who was one of Orlando’s most influential citizens of that era.
On March 13, 2008, the chapter honored the original 13 chapter members with a grave site marker. The beautiful site is located at Greenwood Cemetery, 1603 Greenwood Street, Orlando. The marker is on the historic Greenwood Cemetery tour every week.
The Orlando Chapter, NSDAR, is a non-profit, non-political, volunteer women’s service organization. It is dedicated to preserving American history, securing America’s future through better education and promoting patriotism. Our chapter has proudly served our community for over a century.
