The Ohio Society Daughters of the American Revolution is so happy that you've found us! We are nearly 6000 members strong with 103 chapters throughout Ohio following our objectives of Historic Preservation, Education, and Patriotism.
|HISTORIC PRESERVATION In the fall of 2012, we celebrated 60 years of operating a museum at our historic Christian Waldschmidt Homestead. Completed in 1804, the Pennsylvania style stone house is a jewel nestled in the rolling hills near Camp Dennison, Ohio. For more information click here.||

Chapters also sponsor the American History Essay Contest, Christopher Columbus Essay Contest and DAR Good Citizens Contest. The Scholarships and Contests links will provide more information.
PATRIOTISM Ohio Daughters participate in a variety of patriotic activities which include a number of projects within our communities to benefit veterans; volunteering at VA Medical Centers; care packages to active duty military; ROTC and JROTC medals to local schools; observation of Constitution Week each September; providing American flags and Flag Code pamphlets to many groups; and participation in naturalization ceremonies to welcome new citizens, just to name a few. There are a multitude of other activities within our communities where you will find DAR members involved. The Community Service link and our NSDAR website will give you additional information as to the scope of this objective. The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, founded in 1890 and headquartered in Washington, D.C., is a non-profit, non-political volunteer women's service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America's future through better education for children.
