Oldest Active Chapter in Nevada


Did No One Know About the Montezuma Chapter?

For those who have seen our Chapter History Page, you'll know that the Nevada Sagebrush Chapter is the oldest active NSDAR chapter in Nevada!

In 1910, the Montezuma became the first NSDAR chapter in Nevada, but due to unfortunate circumstances, it was ended in 1919.

Knowing that the Nevada Sagebrush Chapter was founded in 1923, it's interesting to read that in 1922, the Reno Newspaper didn't realize that we weren't the first..

Regardless, we are so thankful that
Mrs. Gelder paved the road for our founding!!!
