Welcome to Thankful Hubbard Chapter

Thank you for visiting our website. We want to help you if you are interested in joining the Thankful Hubbard Chapter of DAR! Any woman, 18 years of age or older, who can prove her lineage to an American Revolution patriot, is eligible. Your patriot may have provided military, patriotic, or civil service. We may be able to match your online family tree to an existing proven lineage in DAR, or help you to find a new patriot who has not yet been recognized.

We are blessed with talented, enthusiastic members of all ages who are proud to serve the Austin area. Thankful Hubbard Chapter awards scholarships, honors veterans and active duty military, helps to preserve historic sites, celebrates our American heritage, and preserves genealogical records. It is our hope that you will join us and we look forward to hearing from you! Admission to membership in the NSDAR is either by invitation through a Chapter in your State Society (or Unit Overseas) or as a Member-At-Large. If you are interested in joining the Thankful Hubbard Chapter, please email the chapter.

Our chapter meets the 2nd Tuesday of each month, September through May, at a charming, historic 1870's era Victorian mansion, just west of downtown Austin. We are the 2nd largest chapter in the State of Texas and the United States and we continue to grow! We are proud to have won the DAR National Award for the most new members in the U.S. for the last 3 years. We are proud to have the 2nd largest count of Junior Members (under age 35) in the State.

In addition to monthly chapter meetings, we are privileged to share and enjoy these events together:

  • Constitution Week in September, George Washington's Birthday and President's Day in February

  • Veteran's Day Parade in November

  • Holiday Tea in December

  • Memorial Day Service in May at the Texas State Cemetery

  • Historic preservation bus trips to historic locations

  • Genealogy workshops and training

  • Events at the VA clinic

  • Clothing and supply drives for DAR sponsored schools

  • Joint special events with the Sons of the American Revolution

And for new members, we offer:

  • Twice-per-year orientation luncheons with presentations about DAR history, committees, and how to order insignia

  • Encouragement to subscribe to American Spirit magazine and Daughters newsletter to learn about the national society

Thankful Hubbard members are business women, entrepreneurs, educators, lawyers, media and technology professionals, from state and county government, homemakers, retirees, and students. We are interested in our heritage and the volunteer opportunities that Thankful Hubbard offers..”
