Welcome to the Aurora Illinois Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution

Our chapter is one of over 100 chapters in Illinois. We are a wonderful blend of women from all ages and walks of life. Each of us with different talents and life perspectives, but what we have in common is our interest in our Revolutionary War ancestry, and our desire to promote the DAR mission of historic preservation, education, and patriotism.
