History of our Chapter
The Kanestio Valley Chapter NSDAR was organized 11 December 1897. One hundred and fourteen years after the end of the Revolutionary War a group of 20 ladies from the Hornell/Canisteo area formed the Kanestio Valley Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution. This was just 7 years after the national organization was formed in Washington, DC. Harriet Hopkins McConnell was the first Regent. She served until 1903.
