It was a stormy winter day, January 25, 1897, when 18 ladies met in the parlor at Hotel Belmont on the corner of Main and Belmont Street in Brockton, Massachusetts. The preceding months had been devoted to interesting those eligible, filling out applications, and assuring there being a sufficient number of charter members for a new chapter of the DAR to take a place of importance among the Massachusetts chapters, and to be a credit to the city of Brockton.
