Welcome to the Else Cilley Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution!

Founded on August 22, 1898, by Elizabeth Williams Cilley, the Else Cilley chapter is one of twenty-one chapters in the New Hampshire State Organization Daughters of the American Revolution. We serve the areas of Nottingham, Northwood, Deerfield, and Barrington, New Hampshire.

Named for Else Cilley, a direct ancestor of a majority of charter members of the chapter, the chapter consists of a diverse group of ladies who are committed to the ideals of patriotism, education, and historic preservation. The chapter has owned the historic Nottingham Square Schoolhouse since 1974.

We invite you to attend one of our meetings to learn more about the DAR and our chapter. A link to our calendar page is available on the left.
