The members of the Susanna Coutanch Evans Chapter National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) welcome you to our website to learn more about the chapter and about DAR. The chapter is chartered in Greenville, North Carolina, located in the county seat of Pitt County, which is recognized as the hub of eastern North Carolina. With a population of over 80,000, Greenville is home to East Carolina University, including the Brody School of Medicine and the School of Dental Medicine.

The Susanna Coutanch Evans Chapter was organized on May 17, 1979, under Organizing Regent Doris Ballengee, with 17 members. The chapter, which began with a focus toward education and the promotion of patriotism, is the second DAR chapter to form in Greenville. In 1932 Greenville became home to a DAR chapter known as the Greenville Patriots, which existed for a short period of time and then disbanded. During that time, the Greenville Patriots commemorated with markers the site of the first courthouse of Pitt County and the fact that George Washington had visited our town.
