Yates Mill Chapter

Cary, North Carolina

The Yates Mill Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR), was started in the summer of 2004 by twelve members. These women wanted to have a chapter that would meet in the evenings with a fun, relaxed, and enjoyable atmosphere. The chapter has grown to over 96 members, representing an active group that includes young mothers, career women, community volunteers, educators, and retirees with grandchildren. If your ancestor was a Revolutionary War patriot we invite you to come visit our group! Please contact our chapter for more information.

Historic Yates Mill

Our chapter name comes from the beautiful, historic park of Yates Mill located in Raleigh, North Carolina. Yates Mill, built in 1756, served Wake County as a water-powered mill for more than 200 years. Of the 70 gristmills that once served Wake County, Yates Mill is the only one still in operating condition. More information is available at the Historic Yates Mill Park website.

Chapter Meetings

The ladies of the Yates Mill Chapter meet on the second Tuesday of every month, September through May, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. Our programs focus on historical topics, genealogy, and volunteer efforts. We welcome visitors and prospective members.
