Nestled along the Missouri River on the Lewis and Clark Trail lies Parkville, Missouri, home of White Alloe Chapter, NSDAR. Our chapter name is derived from the first white settler in the area, a French-Canadian trapper named Pierre Alloe. More than a century ago he spent his winters in a cave, or “dugout,” on the bank of the branch emptying into the Missouri River at Parkville. The Kickapoo Indians, living across the Missouri River, called him “White Alloe” and gave the name White Alloe Creek to the small stream where he lived. A monument, donated by White Alloe, marks this location on the campus of Park University. Across Missouri Highway 9 from this marker is the old Parkville Train Station Museum, which is adjacent to the Parkville Spirit Fountain. The bench on the east side of the fountain was donated by White Alloe. A second bench sits by the McCoy Meetin' House, Park University, where our fiftieth anniversary was celebrated in 2007.

Each regular meeting (September through June) includes devotions, patriotic exercises, the President General’s message, and a National Defense report. Chapter meetings are held on the first Saturday of the month at 12:30 P.M. for luncheon meetings, at 1:00 P.M. if no lunch is included. Inquiries about our chapter, membership requirements, or help with ancestor research may be directed to Regent Judy Davenport, at jdavenport@kc.rr.com. We welcome prospective members to visit our chapter.

Local activities include observation of Constitution Week, support of the DAR schools, acknowledgment of outstanding youth with Good Citizen awards and prizes for our Essay Contests, and support of both our Veterans and the men and women who currently serve our country.  Delegates attend  District, State and National conferences each year.
