The Mahoning Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, was organized April 18. 1893, by Mrs. Rachel Wick Taylor. Mrs. Wick, on that memorable occasion, met with a little group of women in the H. K. Wick log cabin in Youngstown, Mahoning County, Ohio. The log cabin was on the site of the land purchased by Caleb Baldwin, a soldier of the Revolutionary War and one of the first settlers of Youngstown. The cabin was built by his descendant H. K. Wick. Like all pioneer movements, there were many difficulties to be met; but, through the capable management and foresightedness of the founder, the Mahoning Chapter was accepted as the second chapter organized in the state of Ohio and the sixty fourth in the national organization. A charter was granted February 10, 1894.
The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) is a non-profit, non-political volunteer women’s service organization. DAR members volunteer millions of service hours annually in their local communities including supporting active duty military personnel and assisting veteran patients, awarding thousands of dollars in scholarships and financial aid each year to students, and supporting schools for underserved children with annual donations exceeding one million dollars.
As one of the most inclusive genealogical societies in the country, the DAR boasts 185,000 active members in 3,000 chapters across the United States and internationally. Any woman 18 years or older—regardless of race, religion, or ethnic background—who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution, is eligible for membership.
Encompassing an entire downtown block, DAR National Headquarters houses one of the nation’s premier genealogical libraries, one of the foremost collections of pre-industrial American decorative arts, Washington’s largest concert hall, and an extensive collection of early American manuscripts and imprints.
Since its founding in 1890, DAR has admitted more than 950,000 members. The organization is exempt from Federal income taxes under the provisions of Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code, and receives no government funding.
