Welcome to Toaping Castle Chapter, NSDAR

Toaping Castle Chapter, NSDAR, was organized on June 22, 1945.   Members of this lineage society have given many years of service and support in keeping with the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) objectives of historic preservation, promotion of education, and patriotic endeavor.

We have contributed product labels and material aid to DAR supported schools, awarded DAR Good Citizens and ROTC medals to local students, sponsored deserving students for scholarships, and provided senior leadership for a local Children of the American Revolution society (C.A.R.).

We meet on the second Saturday of each month September through May. We invite you to contact us and join us as a guest at any of our meetings and learn more about Today's DAR and how we Celebrate America! For more membership information, please contact us.

National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR)

The DAR was founded in 1890 and is headquartered in Washington, D.C.  It's a non-profit, non-political volunteer women's service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and securing America's future through better education for children.

DAR members volunteer millions of service hours annually in their local communities including supporting active duty military personnel and assisting veteran patients, awarding thousands of dollars in scholarships and financial aid each year to students, and supporting schools for underserved children with annual donations exceeding one million dollars.

As one of the most inclusive genealogical societies in the country, DAR boasts 185,000 members in 3,000 chapters across the United States and internationally.  Any woman 18 years or older - regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background - who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution, is eligible for membership.

Encompassing an entire downtown city block, DAR National Headquarters houses one of the nation's premier genealogical libraries, one of the foremost collections of pre-industrial American decorative arts, Washington's largest concert hall, and an extensive collection of early American manuscripts and imprints.
