Oregon Trail Chapter NSDAR

We of the Oregon Trail are....

The Daughters of the American Revolution. The Daughters of the American Revolution is an international society, with chapters in all 50 states, Canada, Mexico, Germany, France, Japan, Australia, the United Kingdom, Spain, and the Bahamas. Membership in the Society provides many opportunities to cherish our American Heritage of freedom, to preserve family and local histories, to promote celebration of our national holidays, to live patriotically, to support our national defense, to enjoy our beautiful member-owned buildings in Washington, DC, and our four museums here in Oregon, and to form friendships with others who share our love of God, Home and Country.

 The NSDAR Objectives are for Historic Preservation, Promotion of Education, and Patriotic Endeavor.
