The Halifax Convention Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR), welcomes you to learn more about our chapter and our organization. We are a non-profit, non-political volunteer women’s service organization dedicated to promoting the goals of patriotism, historic preservation, and education.

Since the DAR’s establishment in 1890, these timeless and fundamental principles have kept the organization strong and relevant in this ever-changing world. Our mission is as pertinent today as it was when the society was founded. Currently, the National Society is one of the world’s largest and most active non-profit, non-political volunteer women’s service organizations, with more than 185,000 members in 3,000 chapters throughout the United States of America and the world.

The Halifax Convention Chapter, NSDAR, was organized on January 12, 1909, and is among the oldest chapters in North Carolina. Our chapter name was chosen in commemoration of the assemblage of North Carolina patriots held at Halifax on April 12, 1776, where the delegates decided that the colony of North Carolina would be free and independent from England. These resolves, adopted at the Halifax Convention, marked the first official action calling for independence by any colony, and paved the way for the United States Declaration of Independence less than three months later. For more than 100 years, our members have been actively involved in the community, proudly championing the values of history, patriotism, and education.
