It is my honor and pleasure to welcome you to the Missouri State Society Daughters of the American Revolution (MSSDAR) website! With a membership of nearly 5,600 Daughters in 105 chapters around the state, the Missouri State Society is proud to be a part of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR)! The DAR is a non-profit, non-political volunteer women’s service organization dedicated to the promotion of patriotism, education, and historic preservation. With these objectives in mind, Missouri Daughters provide service to their communities through their chapter projects and community events. In the endeavor to promote education, chapters throughout the state sponsor contests and present awards and scholarships to local students from elementary school through college.

Patriotism is supported and promoted through a variety of services and events provided to our veterans, along with the support of our active-duty military and their families.

In the area of historic preservation, Missouri landmarks such as the Madonna of the Trail statue in Lexington; the historic Cold Water Cemetery in the St. Louis area; Roslyn Heights, MSSDAR State Headquarters in Boonville; and the many historic trail markers across the state are just a few examples of Missouri Daughters’ efforts to preserve and maintain historic landmarks.

In addition, Missouri Daughters host, support, and participate in their local community and school events, programs, and activities. Examples of these include: Memorial Day services, Constitution Week, Veterans Day events, Flag Day picnics, July Fourth parades, and holiday celebrations, just to name a few!

If YOU want to participate in the many projects and activities of “Today’s DAR,” contact us about joining a chapter in your area! Visit the MSSDAR Chapter Locator page to contact a chapter near you, learn more about the DAR story, and how to become a member of “Today’s DAR”!

Whenever we have an opportunity, let us work for the good of all, especially for those of the family of faith.” Galatians 6:10 (NRSV)
