About Manor House

A vibrant chapter ...

Manor House Chapter NSDAR, 120-plus years after our founding, is vibrant and growing. Our members span a wide range of ages and interests, including: literacy promotion, service to active-duty military and families, scholarships and educational awards, environmental conservation, women’s issues, and a variety of other community service projects.


Regular chapter meetings are held on the second Tuesday evening of each month (September–May) at various locations across the District of Columbia. Meetings begin with social time, including refreshments and snacks, at 6:30 p.m., followed by a formal chapter meeting at 7:00 p.m. The chapter is committed to ensuring that meeting locations are metro-accessible. All DAR members and prospective members are welcome to join us. If you are interested in attending, please contact us.
