The Mogollon Chapter name was chosen to honor the Mogollon Rim Country with its majestic mountains, beautiful lakes, climate, wildlife, and pure air. The Mogollon Rim was named for Juan Ignacio Florin Mogollon, the governor of New Mexico Territory from 1712-1715, who encouraged and aided the study of a prehistoric people who were in America more than 2000 years ago. This group, which came to be known as the Mogollon Culture, moved into Arizona about 200 B.C. The Mogollon name was given to our chapter in honor of Governor Mogollon and the people of the Rim Country across Arizona.
The Mogollon Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) was organized by the National Board of Management on April 18, 1992, and confirmed at the organizational luncheon the same day with 18 members. The chapter was organized during the administration of State Regent, Beth Haynes, organizing secretary, Patricia Godber, and chapter organizing regent, Alene Conway.
