Do you have a Revolutionary patriot in your family tree?

Membership in the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) honors and preserves the legacy of your patriot ancestor. Over two hundred years ago, American patriots fought and sacrificed for the freedoms we enjoy today. As a member of DAR, through participation in the Society's various programs and activities, you can continue this legacy by actively supporting historic preservation, promotion of education, and patriotic endeavors.

Any woman is eligible for membership who is no less than eighteen years of age and can prove lineal, blood line descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence. She must provide documentation for each statement of birth, marriage, and death.

Admission to membership in the NSDAR is by invitation through a chapter. No chapter may discriminate against an applicant on the basis of race or creed.

If you believe that you are eligible for membership, we encourage you to contact us to learn more!

Dewalt Mechlin NSDAR

The Dewalt Mechlin Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution was organized by Minnie MacFarlane Prince (Mrs. Harry Franklyn C. Prince) and eleven charter members.  Their first meeting on December 6, 1915 was held at the Ridge Park Field House. Mrs. Prince, as founding member, chose to name the chapter after her Patriot ancestor, Dewalt Mechlin.

On October 17, 2015, the members of the Dewalt Mechlin NSDAR celebrated their Centennial Jubilee. To see photos of this event, click here.
