The Colonel William Crawford Chapter of NSDAR was organized on June 11, 1926, on the anniversary of the burning at the stake of Colonel William Crawford in Wyandot County near Crawford. Our chapter purchased the Col. Wm. Crawford chair for $150 in 1926 in Constitution Hall. In 1931, chapter won the NW District's "Most Historic Site" contest. With the $200, tablets were purchased to commemorate the friendship of Col Wm Crawford and George Washington and also Col Crawford's military record. The granite base was from a pillar of the old Courthouse and the upright round stone upon which the tablets rest was a buhr wheel from the oldest mill in Wyandot County, the Fehl Mill near Marseilles.

The chapter has contributed to the Red Cross, Ellis Island, DAR approved schools (monetary, Campbell's soup labels and clothing), scholarships, war bonds and war projects. Chapter made a Bicentennial Signature quilt, planted memorial trees, donated books to NSDAR library and local libraries, contributed to Seimes Micro Film project, participates in local parades, donates to locals historical projects, donated flag set to local libraries, won the 24" "Miss 1845" doll, celebrated 70th anniversary in 1996, donated $500 to dedicate a seat for Constitution Hall in 1998, contributed to the World War II Memorial, donated to the restoration of Ft. Lauren's Revolutionary War Fort and many other projects through the years.
