We are proud to serve our community through various philanthropic activities and projects that promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism. Our Daughters devote time and resources to the projects and activities below.
The homestead is a historic property owned and maintained by the Ohio State Society DAR. Our chapter members often volunteer here.
Israel Ludlow Monument
Our chapter erected the monument in 1916 to commemorate the historic spot where Ludlow, the surveyor who planned out Cincinnati, had built a blockhouse in 1791.
“We believe that the history is important to the Northside community and take pride in keeping the monument in good shape,” says past regent Gretchen Wilson.
Marker Text: Monument marking the site of the Israel Ludlow blockhouse which was originally built in 1791 but torn down in 1850. General Anthony Wayne and his army encamped here in 1793.
Wreaths Across America
Every December, we participate in Wreaths Across America at Spring Grove Cemetery. Remembrance wreaths are placed to remember and honor veterans through the laying on the graves of our country’s fallen heroes and the act of saying the name of each and every veteran aloud.
We are always considering new opportunities for community involvement. Please contact us if you have a volunteer opportunity for us to consider.
