Comte de Grasse Chapter
Daughters of the American Revolution
Named for one of the heroes of the Battle of Yorktown, Francois Joseph Paul, Marquis de Grasse-Tilly, Comte de Grasse, the chapter has owned and maintained the historic Yorktown Custom House since 1924.
The Custom House, built about 1720 by Custom Agent Richard Ambler, occupies a unique place in American History. Listed on the Virginia Landmark Register and National Register of Historic Places, the Custom House is also one of only twelve Historic Custom Houses in the United States. Maintained solely by the chapter, the Custom House also hosts a museum and has been open to the public on Sundays from June to October since 1930 at no charge.
