Algonquin Chapter, NSDAR
Benton Harbor, MI
Patricia Hill, Regent of the Algonquin Chapter welcomes you. Our chapter was organized on
May 25, 1898 in Benton Harbor, by Stella Louise Winchester and 18 patriotic
women. We are located on Michigan's west coast,
just minutes from Lake Michigan.
chapter derives its name from the Algonquin Indians, the most populous and
widespread North American Native groups, with tribes originally numbering
in the hundreds and speaking several related dialects. The
Potawatomi and Ottawa were the tribes in this area.
