New Orleans Chapter

Located in New Orleans, LA 
Chapter Meetings- 1st Thursday or Saturday of most months
Meeting Time- 11:00am

The New Orleans Chapter was the second chapter formed in New Orleans, Louisiana with the charter being issued on April 19, 1913. 

Members of the New Orleans chapter have placed nine historical markers on the graves of past regents and members graves have also been marked.  In recent years, a marker commemorating Higgins Company, the builder of World War II PT boats, was placed at Delgado College. Another marker was placed marking a breach in the Mississippi River levee. Placing markers around the city shows the rich history of the chapter and the impacts it has made on the area since 1913.

The New Orleans Chapter strives to live up to the NSDAR motto: God, Home and Country through its work with education, patriotic activities, and historic preservation. Members gather annually for a luncheon as well as a Christmas Tea and auction. 

The chapter is involved in many different service projects: 

  • Every June, Members attend a Flag Day ceremony at the Knights of Columbus Hall on Harrison Avenue.

  • In October, on National Day of Service, members join firemen in the city for lunch to thank them for their service.

  • Extensive work has been done collecting, sorting, and delivering clothes for veterans

  • Members enjoy supporting the NSDAR Schools. 

This chapter is a fun, friendly group and is welcoming new members!
