About our Chapter


The William P. Duval Chapter, NSDAR was organized on May 13, 1957. Our chapter was named for William P. Duval (1784-1854), who served as the first Civilian Governor of Florida Territory, from 1822-1834. 

We hold our meetings in Winter Park, Florida; however, our members live throughout the Central Florida area and beyond. On May 10, 2017 we celebrated the 60th anniversary of our chapter.

We hold monthly daytime meetings each month September through May. We also hold quarterly night meetings for those women who are unable to attend daytime meetings. 

Our chapter programs are diverse and we take field trips to enhance our members’ experiences.

  • Our chapter conducts four classes that are open to the public at the Winter Park Library:
    • Two Beginning Genealogy classes
    • Two How to Find Revolutionary War Patriots classes.
  • We also conduct a Supplemental Application Workshop for DAR members.
  • We award scholarships to outstanding graduating seniors from Winter Park High School.
  • We support both the Tamassee and Kate Duncan Smith DAR Schools. 
  • We support veterans in a variety of ways. 
  • We participate in Community Events to foster awareness of the NSDAR. 
  • We award National Defense medals that include, but are not limited to, Junior ROTC and ROTC cadets. 
  • We have many active committees.
