New York, New YorK
Knickerbocker Chapter, NSDAR

Welcome to the Knickerbockers

Preserving the past for the future


Our chapter is dedicated to promoting Historic

Preservation, Education, and Patriotism.


The Knickerbocker Chapter of the National Society of the

Daughters of American Revolution was originally organized in 1897 but disbanded in 1961. On December 11, 2004, the chapter was reorganized by 19 charter members. We currently have over 80 members in the chapter.


The chapter is named after a Knickerbocker which means “native or inhabitant of the city or state of New York.” It is also the pseudonym under which Washington Irving wrote History of New York, a book about active American writers in the early 19th century.


Chapter meetings are held on the first Thursday evening of each month September through June. Prospective members are always welcomed. For meeting or event information, please contact us.
