What We Do
The Caroline Scott Harrison Chapter, NSDAR, is an enthusiastic and dedicated chapter, comprised of women who share a deep interest in American history, patriotism, education, historic preservation, and support for our veterans.
We provide support through a variety of creative hands-on projects. We celebrate the history of our country through our educational programming, book club, and our over 55 committees. There is truly something for everybody!
The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, also known as NSDAR or DAR, is a women’s lineage society and service organization. Members of the DAR range in age from young ladies to grandmothers, who dedicate their time and energy to our mission: promote historic preservation, education and patriotism. Our members provide thousands of volunteer hours in service to veteran organizations, schools, literacy, and historic landmark preservation.
The DAR has a deeply rich history, while also being truly relevant in today’s world. More than one million women have joined the organization since it was founded over 125 years ago. They became members to honor their heritage as well as make a difference in their communities across the country and the world. DAR honors our shared ancestry, the Patriots of the Revolutionary War.
The DAR National Headquarters is located in Washington, D.C. and is housed in a beautiful building which fills an entire block. The building boasts a comprehensive genealogical library, extensive historic document collection, a decorative arts museum, and a concert hall. The annual NSDAR Continental Congress is held here.
