The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR), founded in 1890 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., is a volunteer women's service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America's future through better education for children. Any woman is eligible for membership who is no less than eighteen years of age and can prove lineal, bloodline descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence.
We are located in Walhalla, South Carolina, and would love to talk to you about becoming a member of the Society. Our chapter was founded in July 1916, with 16 members. We currently have over 100 members. In 2016, we celebrated our 100th birthday. Chapter members reside throughout Oconee County and Pickens County, South Carolina and we meet on the first Tuesday of every month, except September and January, with a variety of historic, patriotic, and educational programs. The Walhalla Chapter is a congenial group of both long-term residents and more recent "transplants." If you would like more information about the DAR, including membership requirements, please e-mail our chapter regent.
