Organized May 28, 1895, the Boston Tea Party Chapter is a Massachusetts chapter of the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR).

Our mission is historic preservation, education, and patriotism.

Message from Chapter Regent, Peggy O’Connor

Thank you for your interest in the Boston Tea Party Chapter, NSDAR. We are part of the Massachusetts State DAR organization. On this site, you will find more information about us and how to join. We are a chapter made of women of all ages who share a common bond: an ancestor who was a patriot in the American Revolution. We meet once a month as a chapter in and around Boston.

Join us in bringing history to life and finding friendship through service.


Peggy O'Connor, Regent
Boston Tea Party Chapter, NSDAR

About Our Chapter

Boston Tea Party Chapter has over 100 members from eighteen different states; of these, 16 are Junior Members. We have nearly 30 associate members. We welcome members to actively participate on any of our committees as well as on our elected executive board.

Our chapter meets once a month on Saturdays or Sundays from September through May (though we break for January!); we typically have a bit of socializing, a business meeting, and a topical program. We volunteer at a local homeless shelter once a month as a group on Sundays. We also host periodic social events. Guests, prospective members, and "HODARS" are welcome at our events.

Many Boston Tea Party Chapter NSDAR members participate in state and National Society committees, clubs, boards, and events.
