Welcome to the Palisade Glacier Chapter DAR
The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) is a non-profit, non-political volunteer service organization made up of over 175,000 members with 3,000 chapters. These chapters are located in all fifty states and in many countries around the world. On October 11, 1890, eighteen women met to officially organize the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR) for historic, educational, and patriotic purposes. Since that day, over 800,000 members have been admitted into membership.
The Palisade Glade Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, was organized on May 9, 1951. Our chapter was named for the Palisade Glacier which is located on the northeast side of the Palisades within the John Muir Wilderness in the central Sierra Nevada of California. The glacier descends from the flanks of four mountain peaks over 14,000 ft. in elevation of which North Palisade 14,242 ft. is third highest peak in the Sierra Nevada Range.
