Welcome!

The DAR, founded in 1890 and headquartered in Washington, DC, is a volunteer women's service organization dedicated to promoting and preserving American history, and securing America's future through the education of children.  Any woman is eligible for membership who is not less than eighteen years of age and can prove lineal, bloodline descent of an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence.
 

The Rebecca Pickens Chapter was organized in 1916.  We are located in Dillon, South Carolina, and we would love to talk with you about becoming a member of the Society.  If you would like more information about the DAR, including membership requirements, please email our chapter contact person!
