The Daughters of the American Revolution was founded in 1890 to promote historic preservation, education and patriotism. Its members are descended from the patriots who won American independence during the Revolutionary War.
The chapter promotes historic preservation, education and patriotism through commemorative events, scholarships and educational initiatives, citizenship programs, service to veterans, and service to the community.
