The Mohawk Chapter NSDAR of Albany, New York, welcomes you!
We thank you for your interest and invite you to learn more about the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) and our local Mohawk Chapter NSDAR. We think you’ll find the DAR a great way to get better acquainted with your community and make a meaningful difference locally and nationally—all while enjoying enriching experiences.
The National Society of the American Revolution is a nonprofit, nonpolitical volunteer women's service organization comprising 3,000 chapters and over 185,000 members. Today's DAR is a thriving women's service organization that focuses on work in local communities to promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism. More information about the NSDAR can be found at their website.
The Mohawk Chapter NSDAR is one of 126 chapters across New York State. More information about the New York State organization can be found at NYDAR.
Our chapter provides a unique opportunity to honor your heritage and to serve your community and nation. The Mohawk Chapter NSDAR has over 70 members, primarily from Albany County and the greater Capital District of New York State, as well as from across the country. The Mohawk Chapter NSDAR conducts eight membership meetings a year, not including the months of January, February, July, and August. Our flexible meeting times (day or evening or weekday or weekend) appeal to our membership. Each chapter meeting has a well-planned program to promote the objectives—historic preservation, education, and patriotism—of the NSDAR. Many of our meetings are field trips to historical or culturally significant sites in the nearby area. Our guest speakers are prominent individuals in their fields of study.
One way to find out what we are all about and confirm your interest in the DAR is to attend one of our regular meetings as our guest.
