Welcome to the Ezra Parker Chapter, NSDAR

For nearly a century, members of the Ezra Parker Chapter National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) have served the Detroit metro area with a focus on education, historic preservation, and patriotism. These timeless, overarching principles keep the DAR strong and vitally relevant in this ever-changing world.

While Ezra Parker Chapter, NSDAR, members are from different backgrounds, we are all brought together by our desire to honor our ancestry, our pride in our country, and our willingness to serve our communities. We are a non-profit, non-political, women’s service organization that meets regularly and enjoys the company of enthusiastic and patriotic women. We welcome any woman 18 years or older, who can prove her lineal descent from an ancestor who served the American cause in the war for independence either as a soldier or as a citizen who aided the effort.

Ezra Parker Chapter, NSDAR, meets monthly, September through May, in Royal Oak, Michigan. We would be delighted to invite you to our meetings, please contact our chapter for a list of meeting dates and locations.

​During our meetings, programs are presented by a variety of guest speakers to promote the overall objectives of DAR relating to patriotism, education and historic preservation. There’s something for everyone to learn and enjoy.


Nationally, DAR members volunteer more than 200,000 hours annually to veterans in Veterans Administration (VA) medical centers and non-VA facilities, offer support to America’s service personnel abroad through care packages, sponsor programs promoting the U.S. Constitution, and participate in naturalization ceremonies.

Historic Preservation

DAR members participate in various projects to help preserve the cultural heritage of the United States. The Ezra Parker Chapter, NSDAR, recently funded the restoration of a green vase at the Ford Fairlane in Dearborn, Michigan. Daughters are proud to have acted as hostesses at Memorial Continental Hall during Continental Congress to welcome visitors to the Michigan Period Room, which represents a library in early America.


DAR members are passionate about education through the promotion of the Children of the American Revolution (C.A.R.), DAR Good Citizens, and Junior American Citizens; the provision of scholarships and awards to outstanding students; and the support of six schools through chapter and member donations.
