The Elizabeth Maxwell Steele Chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) was organized on November 22, 1898, chartered the following month on December 29, and is the second oldest chapter in North Carolina. The chapter was named in honor of Rowan County Patriot Elizabeth Maxwell Steele (1733–1791).

We are an active service organization with a focus on promoting patriotism, preserving American and local history, and supporting education for our children. Our members are engaged in service activities in our local community, as well as regionally and nationally.

Salisbury and Rowan County are rich in history. Our members include natives as well as recent arrivals from all over the world.

Prospective members are always welcome at our meetings. We invite you to come learn more about our National Society as we celebrate God, Home, and Country.
