The Amelia Island Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) is based in Fernandina Beach, in Nassau County, Florida. The chapter name comes from the name of the island where we are located. Amelia Island is a barrier island on the northeastern most corner of Florida, and is one of the sites in Florida with a verified American Revolutionary War battle.
