The Feather River Chapter was organized on December 4, 1967. Mrs. William T. Holt was the chapter's first regent. We meet in Oroville monthly between September and May, usually on the third Friday. If you would like to attend a meeting, please contact us for current information.
Oroville was originally named Ophir after the biblical city of gold. When the early settlers tried to register the town's name, Ophir had already been taken. So the town's name became Oroville. The Feather River runs right through Oroville and carried down from the Sierra some of the purest gold found during the California gold rush. The gold brought people here and the Feather River was a trade artery for supplies. Our chapter took its name from this exceedingly rich historic river.
Feather River Chapter, NSDAR supports the activities of both the State and National Societies while also supporting the needs of our local community. Our members reside in Yuba, Sutter, and Butte Counties.
