Welcome to the
Ohio Society Daughters of the American Revolution Website
Let me tell you a little bit about us.
The objectives of the DAR are historic preservation, education, and patriotism. To accomplish our goals, we have many committees doing work with these objectives in mind. As you look through our website, you will see that the DAR has many varied activities that fulfill these goals.
We have over 100 chapters in all, but a very few counties in Ohio. There are several counties that do not have a chapter, but a chapter is close. Each chapter has activities that give financial support to DAR schools; promote literacy; encourage conservation; sponsor scholarships to local students; support our museums by donations or helping hands; promote genealogy preservation; and the list goes on. We encourage Americanism, promote Constitution Week, foster good citizens, volunteer at veterans' hospitals, assist Junior membership and discuss women's issues. There is something for everyone.
The Ohio Society owns and maintains a historic museum complex near Cincinnati called the Christian Waldschmidt Homestead. I encourage you, the visitor, to look at our historic websites and perchance visit our beautiful museum and grounds.
Our motto is "Freedom is Light to the World" and our Bible verse is Matthew 5:16, "Let your light shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven." Our national motto is "God, Home, and Country." Thank you for viewing our site,
