We accomplish this mission by engaging in a wide variety of community service opportunities accessed through local chapters. There are forty-two Connecticut DAR chapters, one is probably close to where you live or work. Whether you have a career, are raising a young family, or are perhaps caring for an elderly parent; CTDAR offers fun, friendships, and a way to contribute to your nation and the local community. You can accomplish this from home, even if you only have a little spare time. Chapters do have a lot of fun along the way, and their chapter members create bonds of friendship that last a lifetime.
CTDAR was organized in 1892 and is part of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR). NSDAR was founded in 1890, with the mission of promoting historic preservation, education, and patriotism. These timeless, overarching principles keep both the DAR and CTDAR strong and vitally relevant in this ever-changing world.
Organized on February 20, 1892. Incorporated on February 3, 1917.
Did you know that our majestic DAR headquarters is located in Washington, D.C., just feet away from the National Mall? Within the DAR Headquarters is the DAR Museum and our beautiful and newly restored Connecticut Boardroom.
We keep in touch with the National Society, the other state societies, and Units Overseas by subscribing to the American Spirit Magazine.
The chapters are listed by town. You do not need to join a chapter where you live.
