The Canton Chapter DAR, founded on November 20, 1908, is still going strong almost 120 years later. We are a non-political, volunteer women's service organization, dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and fostering better education for our children.
We meet the first Wednesday of every month, with the exception of January, and on two Saturdays during the year. Our members live all over Stark County: from Canton, North Canton, Jackson Township, Louisville, Hartville, Lake Township, Canal Fulton, Plain Township, Malvern, Bolivar, Canton South, and Carrollton.
Although DAR members come from a variety of backgrounds and interests, we all share a common bond of having a proven ancestor who either fought in or supported the American War of Independence. Any woman 18 years or older, regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background, who can prove their lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution, is eligible to join.
Do you have a Revolutionary War patriot in your family? Please contact us to learn more about our chapter. Not sure if you have a patriot? Contact us anyway and we will try to help you find out!
We look forward to hearing from 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, promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism in their communities.
