About the Gallatin Chapter NSDAR

Gallatin, Missouri, is located in Northwest Missouri, 48 miles east of St. Joseph and 65 miles northeast of Kansas City. Gallatin is the seat of Daviess County. The town was named for Albert Gallatin, and when our DAR chapter was organized on November 22, 1913, we chose to name the chapter after our town and its namesake.

Chapter meetings are held on the second Wednesday of September through June at 1:30 p.m. with the exception of several luncheon meetings which are at 12:30 p.m. Throughout the year we have many outstanding programs which reflect the DAR ideals of patriotism, education, and historical preservation.

You can visit the DAR Genealogical Research System which will let you know if your ancestor is a recognized Revolutionary War patriot. We will be happy to assist you in proving your lineage to your Revolutionary War patriot. If you are interested in joining the DAR and would like to attend one of our meetings, please contact us.
