Ye Towne of Bath Chapter NSDAR (National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution) was organized in 1932, under the State Regency of Blanch L. Reymann, the Organizing Regent was Martha May Harmison. The name of the chapter was chosen because the original name for Berkeley Springs was Bath (Town of Bath) so named for Bath, England. It was named by Lord Fairfax as was chartered by the Assembly of Virginia in 1776.
Our chapter supports the objectives of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution: Historic Preservation, Education, and Patriotism.
Join us as we honor our Revolutionary War Patriots. When you join DAR, you enter a network of more than 185,000 women who form lifelong bonds, honor their American Revolutionary War ancestors, and promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism in their communities. Any woman 18 years or older who can prove lineal, bloodline descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence is eligible to join the DAR. You must provide documentation for each statement of birth, marriage, and death, as well as of the Revolutionary War service of your Patriot ancestor. Do you have a qualified Revolutionary War ancestor? Did you know DAR accepts proven lineage to those who served in many different capacities, including patriotic and civil service, not just Patriots on the battlefield or at sea? Was your ancestor a town clerk, selectman, constable, or surveyor of highways? Did he sign an oath of allegiance? Contact us for help in finding your Patriot!
