The Freedom Hill Chapter undertakes numerous projects to preserve history, foster patriotism, and promote education in the McLean/Great Falls area and in other parts of Virginia.  Over the years, we have:

  3. Honored area students annually in the 5th, 8th, and 12th grades for outstanding citizenship and patriotism, and students in the 6th and 7th grades for outstanding work in American History.

  4. Donated American flags to local schools, libraries, and Girl Scout Gold Award Winners.

  5. Restored the fence that protects one of the original boundary stones marking the District of Columbia.

  6. Helped meet the needs of veteran patients at Virginia Veterans Affairs medical centers and other locations through volunteer work and donations.

  7. Collected nearly 2,500 books for donation to the Rosa Keller Branch of the New Orleans Public Library, which is located in the Broadmoor neighborhood.  Broadmoor was devastated by Hurricane Katrina.

  8. Contributed to the restoration of the William Watters Cemetery, the rebuilding of the farmhouse at Claude Moore Colonial Farm, and the marking of historic Langley Fork.

Thank you for visiting the website for the Freedom Hill Chapter, NSDAR.  We are based in McLean, Virginia, and have over 200 members from as close in as McLean and Great Falls to as far away as Fredericksburg.  We have been recognized frequently as one of the top chapters in Virginia for supporting and encouraging our members aged 35 and under; however, our membership spans the age spectrum, and all ages are well represented.  Many chapter members work outside the home in positions in private industry, government, and education.  Others work at home (both with and without pay) and engage in a variety of volunteer activities.  Many of our chapter members have served or currently serve the DAR at the district, state, or national level.
