About our Chapter
The La Puerta de Oro, San Francisco, Sequoia, and California chapters have merged into one great chapter, now known as the La Puerta de Oro ~ San Francisco Chapter. The Sequoia Chapter was the first chapter organized in the state of California, in 1891. It has been with pride and dedication that we have come together to work for the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution. As other Daughters have before us, we strive to continue to achieve our Society's goals.
