Welcome to Mount Lookout Chapter
National Society Daughters of the American Revolution
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
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
