About Us

             The Fort Payne Chapter of the National Society of Daughters of The American Revolution is one of the over one-hundred Illinois Chapters, and is located in Naperville, Illinois.

             The Chapter supports the Nation’s men and women in the armed forces through the members participation in patriotic programs.

             Participation by the Chapter in the National DAR essay contest provides 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students of the community opportunities for growth and development as future citizens.

             The Chapter holds oral essay contests for students of the 7th and 8th grade of the schools of the community, permitting the students to enhance their leadership qualities for these future leaders of  our country.

             With participation from each local high school each year, the Chapter recognizes one student from each school as a good citizenship winner.

             The Chapter preserves local landmarks of historical significance.  In 2008 in conjunction with several other patriotic organizations a New Marker Dedication Ceremony to honor the memory of Revolutionary War Patriot, Israel Putnam Warner, his daughter, Esther Warner Kenyon (who is a DAR “First Daughter”), son-in-law, and grandsons, was held at the site of a local church, the place of their interment.
