The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) is a non-profit, non-political, volunteer women’s service organization comprising 3,000 chapters and Over 180,000 members. On October 11, 1890, eighteen women officially organized the NSDAR for historic, educational, and patriotic purposes. Since that day, more than 900,00 women have joined, representing chapters in fifty states and many countries around the world.

Thank you for visiting the La Cuesta Chapter, NSDAR website, located along the beautiful Central Coast of California in San Luis Obispo. Many of our Members live from Cambria to Nipomo, with our monthly meeting being held on the last Wednesday of the month.

Our programs feature interesting topics from patriotic to conservation, to community and women issues. The programs being decided by a very talented membership.

Our membership is growing at 60 plus strong. An intimate group of patriotic, fun-loving, and community-oriented women. The meetings are informative and bring us all together, while finding friendships that last a lifetime. These friendships bind together in hard work as we bring DAR into
the community.

More than twenty-one women have served as La Cuesta Chapter regents and have held district chairs, since our charter members first met in January 1951. Among our current chapter membership, there are a number of past regents and members who have held other positions at the district and or state level.

La Cuesta Chapter supports and participates in projects for active American military and our veterans of all wars. We support reforestation and other green projects. We support the DAR schools with donations of Campbell product labels, Box Tops for Education and monetary donations. We are actively involved in the preservation of documents, relics and records of individual service of the Revolutionary War soldiers and patriots, as well as preservation of historical sites in all parts of our state and country.

We are a wonderful team of patriotic women and welcome any woman for membership. You must be over 18 years of age and descended from a man or woman who aided in achieving American independence during the period between April 19, 1775 and November 26, 1783.
