Welcome to the Kentucky State Daughters of the American Revolution website. DAR is a non-profit, nonpolitical organization. It is a volunteer women's
service organization which is dedicated to historic preservation, patriotism and education. There are over 170,000 women in 3,000 chapters across the United States and overseas. Members volunteer 250,000 hours annually assisting the veterans. The DAR promotes American History by having essay contests and museum programs for schools. $150,000 in scholarships and financial aid are awarded each year to high school and college students. Any woman over the age of 18 or older, who can prove lineal descent from a Patriot of the American Revolution is eligible to join.
Kentucky has its headquarters at Duncan Tavern Historic Center located in Paris, KY. Tours are given at the museum. The John Fox Genealogical Library is open to the public. Both can be visited during scheduled hours. Special events take place at the Tavern during the year. Duncan Tavern Historic Center does have a website which I encourage you to visit.
In DAR Friendship,
Barbara Glass Zink, Kentucky State Regent
