Cuyahoga Portage Chapter, Akron, Ohio
Daughters of the American Revolution
Founded 25 January 1897
Red White Blue bar

The name Cuyahoga Portage comes from the trail used by the Erie Indians. This trail later known as the Indian Trail and Portage Path was the highway between the St. Lawrence and the Gulf of Mexico. The pathway was the only break in water communications between these two places. This trail was not only a national boundary but a neutral highway and provided safe passage.

Our Organizing Regent was Mrs. Emily Bronson Conger, wife of Col. A.L. Conger. At the second chapter meeting the Chapter Motto was adopted, "Not for Self but for Country." There were nineteen charter members.
