Welcome to the 

Colonel Timothy Bigelow Chapter 

National Society of the

Daughters of the American Revolution

Worcester, Massachusetts


Chapter Regent: Caroline Bigelow

Chapter Theme:  "Preserving Our Legacy, Planting Our Future"

With over one hundred members in our chapter, we are an active organization represented by women of all ages and experiences. Come and help us build our DAR chapter for the twenty-first century.

Our chapter is dedicated to promoting historic preservation, education, and patriotism.

We are preserving the past for the future.

      On October 11, 1890, eighteen women met to officially organize the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR). Nine years later, the Col. Timothy Bigelow Chapter charter was accepted on August 9, 1899, by the NSDAR.

We are a non-profit, non-political society of women who have proven lineal descent  from a Revolutionary War ancestor (man or woman).  Any woman is eligible for membership who is eighteen years or older and can prove lineal, blood line descent from an ancestor who aided in achieving American independence.  If you think you may have a patriot ancestor,  we would be happy to assist you in ascertaining your eligibility for membership.

Chapter meetings are held monthly from September through June. Members, prospective members, and invited guests are welcome to attend. Please Col.TimothyBigelowChapter@gmail.com if you would like to attend a meeting as our guest.

Our chapter is named in honor of Colonel Timothy Bigelow, an American patriot, who served in the Revolutionary War.  The Col. Timothy Bigelow Monument on Worcester Common honors this distinguished hero to this day.

“Our emblem is a golden wheel
Banded with deepest blue;
Each shining spoke tipped with a star,
The distaff showing through.
The only jewel in the world
That money cannot buy,
Without such proof of ancestry
As no one can deny.”
