Our chapter charter (No. 610) was granted in 1903 and received in Silver City in 1904. The name Jacob Bennett was chosen because six of the charter members were descendants of this Revolutionary War patriot and another member was related by marriage. We are located in Silver City but embrace the whole of Grant County and some of the adjacent counties. Our membership draws from the mining communities, ranches, farms, and includes members from Hidalgo and Sierra counties.
Luncheon meetings are held on the second Saturday of each month from September to June, usually in private homes. We cordially invite you to contact us for membership information.
