Historic Preservation, Education, Patriotism, Friendship

Do you know your American roots and your family's role in American History?
Do you have an ancestor who fought in or supported the American Revolution?
Do you want to make a difference in your community and help preserve American's heritage?

JOIN US! DAR is looking for you!

Arrow Rock, Missouri, is a truly special place for a DAR chapter. Our town emulates DAR's goal to preserve American history. The entire town is a National Historic Landmark. It is also a Missouri State Park. Arrow Rock is one of Missouri's smallest towns, population 79; yet we entertain about 200,000 visitors a year, who step into the past when they enter our town.

In 1923 it was the Missouri State Society Daughters of the American Revolution who first encouraged the state of Missouri to restore the Huston Tavern, thus paving the way for the restoration of a town which had been untouched by time.

About Arrow Rock Chapter NSDAR

Some of our members live in Arrow Rock, itself, while others live in neighboring communities. Our chapter has continually promoted the DAR objectives of historic preservation, patriotism, and education since it was founded in 1924. Among our many activities, you will find Arrow Rock DAR members in the annual 4th of July parade proudly displaying an antique American flag. Some of us serve as docents at the various historical buildings in Arrow Rock. The Missouri State Society DAR maintains the original kitchen of the Huston Tavern.


Our meetings are held on the third Tuesday of September through June at various places of interest. Contact us if you are interested in joining DAR and would like to attend one of our meetings. Guests are welcome.
