Chapter Information for
Black’s Fort Chapter NSDAR
Our chapter meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month, September through May.
Celebrating over 90 years of service to the community, Black’s Fort Chapter, NSDAR, was organized in 1921 by Mrs. Dosia Trigg Preston in Abingdon, Virginia.
Behind the Name
The chapter is named after the locality of the meeting of the first court of Washington County. It was erected in 1776 on the lands of Captain Joseph Black, on the west bank of what was then known as Eighteen Miles Creek, alias Castle’s Creek. The fort was built by the settlers living in the vicinity, with the aid of about five hundred other settlers who fled their homes west of Abingdon upon the outbreak of the Indian War that same year..
