STATEMENT FROM THE Principal Officer

" Named for General Braddock who marched through Mt. Pleasant on his way to Pittsburgh.In 1962 the chapter purchased the Samuel Warden Mansion, located at 200 South Church Street, Mt. Pleasant.Their first mission was to copy family bibles to preserve the history of the area. Taking their meetings to cemeteries, they copied the tombstone inscriptions that are long gone today. These records are used by thousands of people doing their family research. The chapters wish was to have a Genealogical Library open to the public. This became a reality in 1995. Since the library has opened we have had over 3,600 visitors from all over the United States. We continue to preserve the education of the children in the history of Western PA. Our Chapter house has been placed on the National Register of Historic Places. We honor our Revolutionary Patriots by belonging to the Daughters of the American Revolution. Out of 100 chapters in the state we are one of 4 chapters that own a home, ours being the largest. "
