Welcome to Harrisburg DAR
A Centennial Chapter
For over 120 years, the Harrisburg Chapter Daughters of the American Revolution has striven to preserve the legacy of the Patriots of the Revolutionary War through demonstrations of patriotism, historical preservation projects, and educational programs. As the site of the Pennsylvania State Capitol, the chapter through the decades has supported our military and veterans through various projects, community education programs, and the identification and preservation of cemeteries where Patriots rest.
If you are a woman 18 years or older who is a direct lineage descendant of the Revolutionary War and are interested in becoming a member of DAR, the information can be found at the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR). The statewide projects can be found at the Pennsylvania State Society Daughters of the American Revolution (PSSDAR).
In our country, when demographics are constantly changing and history is easily forgotten, our chapter will continue to preserve the legacies of our Founding Fathers and the Patriots who fought so bravely for the independence of the United States of America.
