“Chatsworth is home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire and has been passed down through 16 generations of the Cavendish family.
Chatsworth House is renowned for the quality of its art, landscape and hospitality, and it has evolved through the centuries to reflect the tastes, passions and interests of succeeding generations.
Today, Chatsworth contains works of art that span 4,000 years, from ancient Roman and Egyptian sculpture, and masterpieces by Rembrandt, Reynolds and Veronese, to work by outstanding modern artists, including Lucian Freud, Edmund de Waal and David Nash.
There are over 30 rooms to explore, from the magnificent Painted Hall, regal State Rooms, restored Sketch Galleries and beautiful Sculpture Gallery.” www.chatsworth.org/garden
This regal House with its four hundred plus years of history, is also the namesake of our Chapter in Colorado.
Chatsworth Chapter was one of the first chapters of the DBE formed in Colorado in 1983. They meet the second Tuesday of the month at 11am in member’s homes or at a local English Tea shop. Members come from the Aurora, Denver, Englewood, Greenwood Village, Lakewood and Vail areas.
"Some of the ladies of Chatsworth are founding members of the DBE in Colorado, and it is quite a treat to chat with them and learn about their lives both personally and as DBE members. We enjoy our monthly meetings, and social time. Our Chapter Christmas Party and Gift Exchange is fun and well attended, with plenty of good food." Janet, Denver, CO
1. Chatsworth is our founding chapter, dating to 1983. Several members have been a part of this group for most of the years since its inception.
2. Some of the Chapter members are also in a special book entitled "War Brides", that tells the stories of women who married American service men stationed in England during World
War II. Many of them arrived in the U.S. via the "Bride Ships" that sailed from England in 1945 and 1946.
