Welcome to the Philadelphia Chapter, NSDAR

Any woman 18 years or older who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution, is eligible to join our volunteer Society and work with us in educating the young, promoting patriotism and love of country, and striving to preserve our national heritage.

Our membership covers the Philadelphia metropolitan area, but our members live throughout the United States, from East Coast to West Coast, in the North and South.

We meet on the second Saturday of each month, from October to June, and we participate in annual Commemorative Events in Philadelphia, such as the Memorial Day Commemoration in Washington Square Park. Our meeting locations vary. The majority of our meeting and events take place in Philadelphia, but we do host two or three events in the Northwest Philadelphia suburbs.
