The Daughters of the American Revolution or DAR, was founded over 125 years ago.  DAR is a national women’s service organization dedicated to promoting historic preservation, education, patriotism, and honoring the patriots of the Revolutionary War. 

DAR members share a common bond of having an ancestor who helped contribute to securing the independence of the United State of America.  Members are passionate about community service as well as honoring and supporting those who serve our nation.
