Fielding Lewis Chapter
The Fielding Lewis Chapter of the DAR was organized in Marietta, Georgia, with 17 charter members on April 12, 1904. The chapter's organizing regent was Ellen Lowell Crosby, the great-great-granddaughter of Colonel Fielding Lewis and Betty Washington, the sister of George Washington.
Our chapter now has more than 200 members who actively participate in numerous projects throughout the year to preserve American history, secure America's future through better education, and promote patriotism. Chapter meetings are held on the third Wednesday of the month from September to May.
