About the DAR
The DAR, founded in 1890 and
headquartered in Washington, D.C., is a
non-profit, non-political volunteer women's
service organization dedicated to promoting
patriotism, preserving American history, and
securing America's future through better
education for children.
The Henry Downs Chapter enthusiastically
promotes the DAR mission. Our chapter was
founded in 1901 and named for patriot Henry
Downs, Jr. The chapter meets on
the first Friday of the month, September through
May, unless otherwise determined.
about attending a meeting.
For more than a century, the
members of the National Society Daughters of the
American Revolution have dedicated themselves to
historic preservation, promotion of education, and
encouragement of patriotic endeavor. These goals
are as relevant in today's society as they were
when the organization was founded in 1890.
Our chapter seeks to inspire and promote patriotism while educating and engaging in historic preservation. We strive to give back to our community in several ways, including volunteer activities and partnering with other organizations to aid active military personnel, veterans, and their families.
