Greetings from the Bay State!!

On behalf of the more than 2,400  Massachusetts Daughters I extend a warm welcome! I would like to share some history about our organization. The Massachusetts State Society (MDAR) as organized in 1892. Today we have 39 chapters from the Berkshire Mountains in the West to the seacoast towns of Plymouth, Boston, and Salem. Our state is home to Paul Revere, Lexington, Concord, Bunker Hill, and the list goes on. No doubt that our Daughters are motivated to honor and practice the three DAR objectives: historic preservation, education, and patriotism. We live it!

The National Headquarters for the National Society is located in Washington, D.C. It encompasses a city block and is known as “House Beautiful."  DAR has one of the most outstanding genealogical research libraries in the world, plus a museum, period rooms, and much more.  Today’s DAR has over 185,000 members from all corners of the world.  The National Society was founded 125 years ago and is still a vibrant organization.  We are an organization open to all women 18 years or older who can prove ancestors who supported the cause of the American Revolution. Support could be in battle, providing food, shelter, or even a horse!  

I hope you will browse our website and see why we are so proud to be Daughters of the American Revolution. Catch our enthusiasm……It’s contagious!

In DAR Friendship, 
My Best,

Holly Stone Blair
Massachusetts State Regent
