About Our Chapter

Chimney Hill Chapter was organized and chartered in February 1971 with Mrs. Melvin R. Race, now deceased, as Organizing Regent. Our chapter name was selected to focus attention on a natural mound called Chimney Hill that was a guide point for travelers across Pontotoc County on the Old California Road. Topping this mound was a rock formation that suggested an oversized chimney that travelers could see for miles. Captain Marcy used this guide point in 1849 as he led settlers to the area of the California gold rush.

From its inception, Chimney Hill has been active in local, state and national activities. During 1972-74 we initiated a restoration project, and with local assistance restored a one-room schoolhouse which was built in 1892. It has been relocated to a local park and today youngsters enjoy visiting this turn of the century schoolhouse. As a chapter we promote Constitution Week, American History, and DAR Good Citizenship. We award our youth for their participation in these events. We have also presented awards to exceptional ROTC students at East Central University in Ada. We recognize outstanding adult naturalized citizens and contribute service hours to Veterans Hospitals. Our Chapter publishes a newsletter, the Chimney Hill Landmark. The object of this publication is to keep our members informed about DAR activities and encourage participation of all of our members, especially those working and non-resident members.

Chimney Hill continues its growth and takes great pride in the accomplishments of its members. We meet from September through May on the second Tuesday of the month at the Ada Arts and Heritage Center. We welcome new members with enthusiasm and appreciation.
