Welcome to the Basking Ridge Chapter,  NSDAR's web site!

Basking Ridge Chapter chose its name to honor the town where it is located, because of the historic incidents which took place in the area.

It was at Basking Ridge in 1776 that General Lee, second in command of the Continental Army, was captured by the British at the Widow White's Tavern. In 1779 when Washington established his winter headquarters in Morristown, the camp stretched over four miles to the south of Morristown on the Kemble and Wick farms, which were between Morristown and Basking Ridge.
