Welcome to our website

DAR Picture The Vermont State Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (VSSDAR) is 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.

VSSDAR was founded in 1892, just two years after the National Society. Today we have 13 chapters all across the state, from Brattleboro to the Northeast Kingdom. We hope you’ll spend some time here getting to know us and learning more about our vibrant organization.

A letter from our State Regent:

Welcome from Vermont State Society, DAR!

The motto for this administration is “Vermont Daughters, piecing together our Heritage.”
Symbolizing this is our pin for the Administration, a Vermont quilt pattern called “Lady of the Lake.”

DAR is a lineage society. Vermont Daughters are very proud of being descended from patriots who contributed to the birth of this country. The three goals of the Society are serving our community through Patriotism, Education and Historic Preservation. Here in Vermont we do this by honoring students with American History Essay Contests, Good Citizen awards and participating in the Vietnam 50th Anniversary Commemoration effort. We also own and operate the General John Strong Mansion/Museum in Addison Vermont. Built in the 1790s by a Revolutionary War patriot, it is beautiful, historic mansion that we are preserving and sharing with the public.
