Welcome to the College Hill Chapter

In 1976, Ruby McCrary Pfadenhauer was appointed Organizing Regent by the State Board of Management, Georgia Society, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution.  Her mission was to find no less than twenty-five DAR members wishing to become the organizing body of a new DAR Chapter in Augusta, Georgia.  She invited members from her church, Augusta College faculty and faculty wives in addition to inviting sixty other individuals to submit their applications to join DAR.

Of the total invited, thirty-six agreed to formulate a new Chapter to be known as “College Hill Chapter”.  The name “College Hill” was selected and approved because that was the name which George Walton, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence for Georgia, had given to his summer home located in or near the area known as “Summerville”. 

An Organization Meeting was held on October 13, 1976 at the home of Organizing Regent, Mrs. Herman Pfadenhauer, 721 Monte Sano Avenue, Augusta, Georgia with a tea honoring Mrs. Hugh Peterson, State Chaplin, Georgia Society, NSDAR. 

The College Hill Chapter of 36 members was unanimously approved by the National Board, NSDAR effective October 15, 1976.
