About the DAR
Each member of the DAR is a lineal descendant of a patriot who gave aid or was a soldier in the Revolutionary War. The National Society DAR has a summary of facts and information about joining DAR. Further information about DAR may be found at the National Society DAR web site and the Missouri State Society DAR web site. Learn more about the DAR on YouTube, Facebook, and Flickr.
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.
