Welcome to the Anna Keyes Powers Chapter National Society Daughters of the American Revolution.

We serve the greater Hollis, New Hampshire, area.

The Anna Keyes Powers Chapter was founded on October 19, 1906, by Mrs. Elizabeth D. Worcester, and is one of twenty-one chapters in the New Hampshire State Organization Daughters of the American Revolution.

The chapter was named for Anna Keyes Powers, who, along with her husband, Captain Peter Powers, was the first permanent settler of Hollis. She was the mother of four sons who fought in the American Revolution.

Our chapter is active in the Hollis community. We sponsor area students for American History Essay contests, DAR Good Citizens contests, NSDAR and NHSODAR scholarships, and the Christopher Columbus Essay contest. We commemorate Constitution Week, recognize individuals for outstanding community service, acts of valor or heroism, and provide volunteer support and services to our troops and veteran patients. We helped to create "Windows on Hollis Past," a virtual museum of Hollis heritage, and we reguarly contribute to genealogical and historical information in partnernship with the Hollis Historical Society.

We invite you to attend one of our meetings to learn more about DAR and our chapter. Please click here to email us for more information about the Anna Keyes Powers Chapter.
