Welcome to the Harrison Colony Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, chartered in Harrison, Arkansas!
The first officers for the Harrison Colony Chapter were elected on April 18, 1970, at a formal organizational meeting. The name “Harrison Colony” was chosen as a colony in this area and was settled in the early part of the 19th century.
The local Cherokee Indians were friendly, and the settlement was near a spring, which is now in the center of the city of Harrison. There was ample water and game which was essential to life. The Organizing Regent, Mrs. Ruth Jackson, is a Harrison family descendent.
The Harrison Colony Chapter is proud to be a Veterans History Project Partner.
