Welcome to the Cahokia Mound Chapter  

We are honored that you are interested in the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR).  The Cahokia Mound Chapter Daughters actively seek new members and opportunities to promote DAR objectives in our community.  The DAR is a non-profit, non-political, volunteer service organization. Membership in the DAR provides many opportunities to cherish our American heritage of freedom, to preserve family and local histories, to promote celebration of our national holidays, to live patriotically, to support our national defense, and to further the DAR motto of  God, Home, and Country.

Our chapter is named after Cahokia Mounds, the largest archaeological site related to the Mississippian culture, which developed advanced societies in eastern North America centuries before the arrival of Europeans.  Cahokia Mounds is a designated site for state protection and a National Historic Landmark. In addition, it is one of only twenty World Heritage Sites designated in the territory of the United States. It is the largest prehistoric earthen construction in the Americas north of Mexico.

Cahokia Mound Chapter was organized in March 1920.  We normally meet on the 2nd Saturday of the month, September through June.  For more information or to attend one of our meetings, please contact Rhonda.  Membership is open to any woman  who is over 18 years of age and who is descended from a man or woman who aided in achieving American Independence during the period between April 19, 1775, and November 26, 1783.  Would you like to join us?
