The Golden Nugget Chapter was organized on October 12, 1991. Iola Brewton was the chapter's first regent. The chapter's name was chosen because the largest gold nugget ever found in California was discovered in the town of Magalia in 1859, which weighed an amazing 54 pounds, of which 49.5 ounces were pure gold. Most members are from the Paradise area; however, some members are from other areas, as well. Local residency is not a requirement for membership in any chapter.
The Golden Nugget Chapter meets once a month September through May. If you would like to attend one of our meetings, please contact us.
We welcome any woman for membership who is over 18 years of age and who is descended from a man or woman who aided in achieving American Independence during the period between April 19, 1775, and November 26, 1783. Information on membership in the DAR can be found here.
"Honoring our country and its amazing history is the Golden Nugget Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
A group of women devoted to the preservation of our heritage through patriotic and educational programs, the DAR works
tirelessly throughout our country to honor and recognize our marvelous heritage. Remembering the words of our second
President John Adams, "Our obligations to our country never cease but with our lives", the DAR stands firm in its support
of America. Join Us!".
