Daughters of the American Revolution
Completed in 1938, it was the first Chapter House built in North Carolina. This building was never actually a home. Used more for meetings and gatherings. It does have a full kitchen with modern appliances (only the old sink was saved as was the working dumb waiter). This building can now be used for weddings, family reunions, and other events as well as for the DAR functions.
My SIL is a member of the DAR and she was the one who showed our group through the building and explained what the DAR does for education, patriotism and education. I did not take any inside pictures of our tours. I did enjoy both tours. If you are ever in Farmville, they have many, many, old homes. This weekend the town is having it's Dogwood Festival. Perfect time to enjoy this wonderful town.
