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.  

The 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.
