Chapter History: 1895
The Narragansett-Cooke-Gaspee Chapter, NSDAR, was founded on September 7, 1895. The organizing regent was Mrs. Annie M. Hunt and the chapter had fourteen members. Meetings were held in the Jury Room in the old Courthouse in Kingston, Rhode Island. In 1897, the chapter erected a monument honoring Major Ebenezer Adams, a local Revolutionary War hero. The Narragansett-Cooke-Gaspee Chapter, NSDAR, then merged with two existing chapters, Governor Nicholas Cooke Chapter, NSDAR, (organized on October 21, 1931) and the Gaspee Chapter, NSDAR, organized on January 11, 1892, in the “old room” of the Sabin Tavern (built in 1763). The Narragansett-Cooke-Gaspee Chapter, NSDAR is currently celebrating its 125th year!
