Daughters of the American Revolution Historical Markers

Markers erected by all chapters of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). DAR is dedicated to historical preservation, accomplished by the efforts of its chapters at the local level. One of the ways they accomplish this is by placing monuments around the world to memorialize people and events throughout American history.

The series also includes other markers that mention DAR where DAR is not the erecting organization, where a DAR marker is nearby or where an additional photo of a DAR tablet or plaque is included in the page but it does not include enough information to be considered a marker in its own right.
