Fort Churchill Chapter was organized in Fernley, Nevada, on October 06, 2012, by organizing regent Linda Garrett and eleven patriotic women. After a brief telephone call to National, we received affirmation that the Fort Churchill Chapter had been confirmed. After the meeting we took time out to celebrate the 122nd birthday of DAR. Our regular meetings are held in Fernley, Nevada the first Saturday of each month from September through May.
The chapter name, Fort Churchill, was adapted from the once active U.S. Army fort built in 1861 to provide protection for early settlers. The post was named Fort Churchill for Sylvester Churchill, Inspector General of the U.S. Army. Fort Churchill is located eight miles south of Silver Springs on Alternate U.S. 95, and one mile on Fort Churchill Road.
