Scriptures

 

May the favor of the Lord our God rest on us; establish the work of our hands for us.

Psalm 90:17

Remember the days of old; consider the generations long past.

Ask your father and he will tell you, your elders, and they will explain to you.

Deuteronomy 32:7

Chapter Motto

 

Continuity provides roots; change provides branches.

Both are needed to grow and reach new heights.

HISTORY

Organized May 22, 2011  ~  Confirmed June 27, 2011

Maple Hill Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution,

was organized May 22, 2011, by Candace Oglivie Krugh (Mrs. Waymon Searl).

The meeting was held in the fellowship hall at

Faith Presbyterian Church, Huntsville, Alabama.

Marguerite “Rita” Poole Horton, State Regent, was the honored guest.

 

Maple Hill Chapter takes its name from Maple Hill Cemetery, 

said to be the oldest and largest cemetery in Alabama.

Maple Hill Cemetery was established in 1818

when Leroy Pope sold two acres of land to the City of Huntsville for $75.

Designated a historic landmark by the Alabama Historical Association in 1962,

its occupants include five governors of Alabama, five United States senators,

and numerous other figures of local, state, and national note.

It is located east of the Twickenham Historic District.

 

The Huntsville Meridian intersects Maple Hill Cemetery.

Platted in 1807 by surveyor Thomas Freeman,

it is the longitudinal line from which all land in North Alabama was surveyed.

The tallest monument in the cemetery was erected on the meridian by another surveyor,

Richard W. Anderson, "in memory of deceased relatives and to

perpetuate the Huntsville Meridian."

SERVICE

Historic Preservation ~ Education ~ Patriotism

 

For more than a century, members of the

National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR)

have promoted activities in historic preservation, education, and patriotism

that express an immense gratitude to, and love for this nation,

and that foster a similar devotion in our citizens.

These goals are as relevant in today’s society as they were

in 1890 when the organization was founded.

 

Volunteers from the Maple Hill Chapter

support the NSDAR’s three objectives of 

historic preservation, education, and patriotism

by promoting a variety of activities in our local communities.
