Chapter History

Crockett’s Forge Seat Chapter was organized on September 24, 1966, in Brentwood, TN by Mrs. Richard Frank; with Mrs. Frank as its first President. The chapter was named for the home of Samuel and Andrew Crockett. Completed in 1808, the home derived its name from an ancient forge located on the place where many rifles were made for the war of 1812.
