Welcome to the website of the Colorado Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution.

Please enjoy your visit to these pages as you explore and learn more about who we are, what we do, our patriot ancestors, how to join us, and researching your own family history. Additional information about us can be found on the website of the Colorado State Society, NSDAR, and the National Society DAR.  Also available is the Statement of Recognition of American Indian Homelands.

The Colorado Chapter, NSDAR, currently has 144 members from the Denver metro area representing a wide variety of backgrounds, ages, and interests. We meet on the fourth Friday of each month, September through May, with occasional Saturday meetings. We are a service organization that focuses on DAR goals of historic preservation, education, and patriotism. Our registrar and volunteer genealogists take an active role in assisting prospective members in their ancestry research and application paperwork.

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) is a volunteer service organization founded in Washington, D.C. on October 11, 1890. We promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism. From providing scholarships, to supporting community volunteer projects, to historic preservation, the DAR is committed to helping keep America strong.

Any woman 18 years or older, regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background, who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution is eligible for membership. DAR defines a “patriot” as one who provided service or direct assistance in achieving America’s independence.

The Colorado Chapter founded its chapter in 1904, making us the fourth chapter to organize in the State of Colorado. We have many women from all walks of life whose ancestors participated in some way, in the Revolutionary War. The DAR has chapters all over the world and our Colorado Chapter NSDAR is growing. For detailed information on membership in the DAR, go to the National DAR website.

We look forward to welcoming you to be a part of our innovative and forward thinking Colorado Chapter!
