Historic Preservation

Preserving our Cultural Heritage

Throughout the history of DAR Historic Preservation has always been one of the main focuses of the mission of the organization. DAR members participate in a wide variety of Historic Preservation projects as it is crucial to saving our history for future generations.


Supporting our Nation's Youth

The DAR is passionate about educating America's youth and supports a variety of different programs, contests and awards to help further this goal. The DAR website offers many different resources that teachers may find useful when they are teaching subjects such as the American Revolutionary War, family history/genealogy, the colonial period and early America. Teachers and students are encouraged to explore the available resources and take advantage of the different programs DAR offers.


Love of Country

For 125 years, the Daughters of the American Revolution has carried the torch of patriotism. Love of country was the purpose; ancestors who fought for freedom was the bond that connected women to unite to form an organization that honored heritage and worked to ensure a bright future for our children. Patriotism is the foundation of the many DAR activities that take place in local communities across the country.
