Nathan Perry Chapter, Lorain, Ohio
Daughters of the American Revolution
Founded 1918
Red White Blue bar

Nathan Perry Chapter was organized by Mrs. Theodore Oehlke in 1918. Several of the chapter's early members were what is known as Real Granddaughters. This is an honorary designation given to a DAR member who is the granddaughter of a Revolutionary War patriot.

The chapter was named after Major Nathan Perry, a Revolutionary War Soldier who came to Ohio with a surveying party to purchase land in the Lorain area. His son, Nathan Perry, became a first settler of Lorain, Ohio, by establishing a trading post in 1807.

Our chapter has been part of the Lorain Memorial Association Service since 1931. Our mission is to promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism in our communities through the programs and projects of the National and Ohio Societies. We are a charter member of the Lorain Veterans Council and are involved in several programs which support our veterans. We participate in naturalization ceremonies at the Federal Courthouse in Cleveland and participate in many programs recognizing students in our local schools. During the year, we offer a variety of programs and speakers who enrich our knowledge and perspectives.
