John Kendrick Chapter, NSDAR

Welcome to the John Kendrick Chapter (JKC) for the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR). Founded in 1914 with 14 women, this NSDAR chapter is nearing its 100th year with around 50 members. Our Daughters range in ages from 18 to over 80 and reside in states from coast to coast. We are a growing and vibrant chapter with dedicated members who support our local community and nation.

The namesake for our chapter is John Kendrick, a patriot in the American Revolution and seaman in the early Northwest Territory. He lived an interesting life, and we encourage you to learn more about him through one of our website links.

The NSDAR holds three primary supportive goals in historic preservation, patriotism, and education. Our chapter also strongly supports these endeavors through service in our community and for our nation.

The primary purpose of this website is to inform the public and prospective members about NSDAR, Washington State DAR, and our John Kendrick Chapter, including its history and activities. A secondary purpose of this website is to preserve a historical record of this chapter, its membership, and events of the Wenatchee Valley area. We hope that you will take time to visit our site and learn a bit about us and DAR. Inquiries are always welcome! We can be reached at
