Chapter History

Our chapter was organized on February 20, 1931. Our name, Mitz-Khan-A-Khan, was the name the Chumash Indians called our area.


We honor our charter members, all now deceased.
They established the course to carry forth the goals and ideals
for which the Daughters of the American Revolution stand.
The record of chapter accomplishments has only been possible through
the whole-hearted efforts of our chapter officers, chairwomen, and members alike.
