National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution


The Hoosier Elm Chapter

Corydon, Indiana


The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution is a non-profit, non-political, volunteer service organization. The Society was founded on October 11, 1890, and NSDAR was incorporated by an Act of the United States Congress in 1896. Over 800,000 members have been admitted since 1890. Currently there are more than 170,000 members. The approximately 3,000 chapters represent all 50 states, the District of Columbia, and several outside the United States.

The main objectives of our chapter are to perpetuate the memory and spirit of the men and women who achieved American Independence, and to cherish, maintain, and extend American History, Education and Patriotism. We would love to have you join us!

We welcome any woman for membership who is over 18 years of age and who is descended from a man or woman who aided in achieving American Independence during the period between April 19, 1775, and November 26, 1783. To learn more about eligibility requirements please visit the NSDAR website. To find more Indiana chapters, visit the Indiana State DAR website. If you would like to be a guest at one of our meetings, please contact Marianne Meisel Chapter Regent.
