Our Chapter History

Ohlone Chapter NSDAR was organized on October 9, 1990. The chapter takes its name from the Ohlone Indians who heavily populated the San Francisco Bay area during the time of the American Revolution. Although there is presently no active tribe of Ohlone Indians in this area, there are numerous preserved Indian sites, burial grounds, and shell mounds available for viewing.
