About DAR

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) was founded on October 11, 1890, with the purposes of historic preservation, promotion of education, and patriotic endeavor. Any woman at least 18 years of age, who can prove lineal, bloodline descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence, is eligible for membership.

The National Society accomplishes the majority of its work under a committee system. Focus of some committees includes: educational programs, scholarship competitions, citizenship awards, literacy programs, lineage research, and commemorative events. For more information visit the DAR web site.

Wherever your interest lies, the DAR has a program area where you can enjoy working with other women to support God, Home, and Country.

The Old Spanish Trail is actually a 1,120-mile route between Santa Fe, New Mexico, and Los Angeles, California, which was traversed by Spanish padres in the 1700s and later by traders and settlers. In 2002, The Old Spanish Trail was designated as a National Historic Trail.
