Daughters of the American Revolution

The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) is a service organization open to any woman age 18 years or older who can prove lineal descent from an American Revolutionary War Patriot. Much of the work of DAR is accomplished by volunteers in its chapters across the United States and internationally in order to promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism.


The Tombstone Chapter, NSDAR, is a local chapter of DAR. Our chapter is based in Sierra Vista, Arizona, and our members come from Bisbee, Douglas, Elfrida, Hereford, Sierra Vista, and beyond.

Our Chapter

In keeping with the purpose of the National Society, chapter members work together on numerous projects in order to promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism. We all have busy lives, so our projects offer ways to contribute that fit our schedules. We keep in touch across our many service projects through monthly meetings, September through June, where we enjoy an informative program, a business session, refreshments, and socializing. Learn more about our activities.

We invite you to contact our chapter registrar who will help you get started in becoming a member of DAR, including tracing your heritage to find an American Revolutionary War Patriot.

Chapter Namesake

The name of our chapter is derived from a group of rocks that at night look like a row of tombstones. These “Tombstone Rocks” are located near the Schieffelin Monument, the final resting spot of Tombstone’s founder, Ed Schieffelin, in Tombstone, Arizona.

The chapter was organized in Tombstone, Arizona, in 1969, but moved its meetings to Sierra Vista in 1985.
