 Our chapter is named after Theodosia Burr Alston. Theodosia was the daughter of Vice President of the United States, Aaron Burr and wife of South Carolina Governor, Joseph Alston.  The chapter was founded on an anniversary of George Washington's birthday, February 22, 1958.

    The first meeting was held at the Dunes Club in Myrtle Beach. Today, over 100 members reflect a variety of geographic origins with most of our members from the Grand Strand.

    Meetings are held once a month, usually on the second Thursday or Saturday from September through June.   Meetings begin at 11am with the National Daughters of the American Revolution Ritual and announcements followed by a speaker, a luncheon, and a brief business meeting. A variety of excellent local facilities are used to host these programs
