About Falls of the Rappahannock Chapter



Meetings are held the second Thursday of each month at 7:00 p.m. 


The chapter sends a monthly newsletter to all members and candidates, notifying them of meeting locations, invited speakers, upcoming special events and other items of interest. 


The chapter does not meet during the summer months of July and August. 


The chapter is involved in a variety of activities in support of the National Society objectives of historic preservation, promotion of education, and patriotic endeavor.

The chapter has sought NSDAR honors for its efforts every year since it's founding.

Whenever possible, members willingly serve on DAR society committees at district, state and national levels. 

National Society



The chapter is currently 54 members strong including members, junior members, and associate members, after having experienced an exceptional period of growth over the last year. While most members live in the immediate area of Stafford and Spotsylvania counties and the city of Fredericksburg, some members have moved away but maintain their local chapter membership. 


Our membership includes many business and professional women: professors, church leaders, entrepreneurs, nurses, teachers, and law enforcement and military personnel.
