Princeton Chapter NSDAR


Celebrating over 120 years of service, patriotism, education, and historical preservation.


 The Princeton Chapter of the NSDAR is dedicated to honoring and preserving the legacy of our patriot ancestors. We seek not only to preserve the historic sites and documents of the past, but to encourage patriotism and foster a love for America in present and future generations.


Our Mission

is to perpetuate the memory and spirit of the men and women who achieved American Independence by ...

  • the acquisition and protection of historical spots and the erection of monuments
  • the encouragement of historical research in relation to the Revolution
  • the preservation of documents and relics, and the preservation of the records of the individual services of Revolutionary soldiers and patriots
  • the promotion of celebrations of all patriotic anniversaries
  • the cherishing, maintaining, and extending of the institutions of American freedom
  •  aiding in the securing for mankind all the blessings of liberty.




The Daughters of the American Revolution is committed to promote patriotic activities and to support active duty military as well as veterans. Go to the National Society DAR website for more information about how the DAR promotes patriotism.
