Welcome to the official website of the Oregon State Society Daughters of the American Revolution (OSSDAR).  


The National Society was founded October 11, 1890, when four women banded together in Washington, DC, to organize a women’s service organization. 


Approximately 950,000 women have joined DAR in the last 125 years. Currently, there are 183,000 members nationwide and in 13 foreign countries.  In Oregon, Multnomah Chapter was the first chapter to organize and the State Society organized in 1914.  


Oregon’s nearly 1,800 members in thirty-seven chapters invite you to discover how you can join DAR.  Any woman eighteen years or older, regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background who can prove lineal descent from a patriot ancestor who proved aid to the American Revolution is eligible for membership.  


In Service to America, Oregon Soars
