Who We Are

DAR was founded in 1890

Please watch this historical introduction to the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution.

Lydia Barnes Potter Chapter, NSDAR, was organized in 2002

The Lydia Barnes Potter Chapter, NSDAR, is located in Waterford, Oakland County, Michigan. Our chapter was organized by 25 charter members on October 5, 2002. 

The first chapter meeting was held at the Waterford Township Police Station in Waterford, Michigan.  

One of the first activities held by the new chapter was the honor of retiring the U.S. flag. This is done when a flag is weathered and cannot be repaired. This activity was performed at the Waterford Township Police Station in 2002, and it is now a tradition that has continued for several years.
