Welcome to Mount Lookout Chapter

 

National Society Daughters of the American Revolution

Golden, Colorado

 

 

 

Lookout Mountain stands at the west edge of the city of Golden. Ute Indians used the mountain as a campground and lookout to detect the approach of enemies. Their smoke-stained teepees sat back on the mountain among the springs and woods while the Arapahoe lived far to the east on the plains near present-day Denver. At a meeting in 1922, prospective members selected several names, among them Mount Lookout, transposing the name of this mountain, and the National Society selected it as the most appropriate.

 

Seventeen women met in June of 1923 to organize the chapter and elect officers. From there, Mount Lookout Chapter has grown to one of the largest chapters in the state of Colorado. Meetings, generally held the first Monday of the month at 1:00 p.m., are open to chapter members, their guests, and prospective members.
