Welcome to the Grand Prairie Chapter, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, chartered in Stuttgart, AR, the duck hunting and rice producing capital of the world. Our chapter is named for the Grand Prairie, a large, flat area of native grassland stretching across a geologically unique portion of the eastern Arkansas Delta that includes Arkansas, Prairie, Lonoke, and Monroe counties.

Grand Prairie Chapter was organized January 22, 1966; Rosamond J. McCuskey (Mrs. J. C.), the first Regent; she lived to be 110. The first chapter meeting was held on February 28, 1966, beginning more than a half-century legacy of supporting NSDAR’s objectives of historic preservation, education, patriotism, and honoring the legacies of those who served in wars to preserve America. We proudly and humbly serve “God, Home, and Country” and invite new members to join us for lasting friendships with remarkable women serving America through DAR.

Regular meetings are held on the fourth Saturday each month, September through May, at 1:00 P.M., unless otherwise stated. On-line/Zoom access to meetings is also available.

Any woman who is eighteen years of age and can prove verified documentation and lineal descent from a Revolutionary War patriot is eligible. Source documents include birth, marriage, and death records, etc. Admission to membership in the NSDAR comes through a local chapter of the state organization (or overseas unit) or as a member-at-large. Prospective members should contact the Grand Prairie Registrar (grand.prairie.chapter@arkansas-dar.org) for membership information.
