The Mary Chesney Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, was organized in 1916 in Warren, Ohio. The chapter was named in honor of Mary Davidson Chesney, one of the early settlers of Warren. Our mission is to promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism in our communities through the programs and projects of the National and Ohio Societies. Our members are dedicated to preserving the memory and spirit of the brave men and women who fought for our American independence.
If you think you have an ancestor who fought or helped in the American Revolution, we invite you to attend our meetings, meet our members, and talk to our registrar. We look forward to meeting you!
Our chapter actively promotes and contributes to the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution. If you would like to attend one of our meetings, please contact us. Our meetings include a variety of interesting and informative programs, relating to education, historic preservation, and patriotism. Guests are welcome.
The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) is a non-profit, non-political, volunteer women’s service organization comprising 3,000 chapters and over 180,000 members. On October 11, 1890, eighteen women officially organized the NSDAR for historic, educational, and patriotic purposes. Since that day, more than 900,000 women have joined, representing chapters in fifty states and many countries around the world.
When you join the DAR, you enter a network of more than 180,000 women who form lifelong bonds, honor their Revolutionary War ancestors, and promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism in their communities.
