Daughters of the American Revolution

The National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) is a service organization open to any woman age 18 years and older who can prove lineal descent from an American Revolutionary War Patriot. Much of the work of DAR is accomplished by volunteers in its chapters across the United States and internationally in order to promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism.


Havasu Chapter, NSDAR, is a local chapter of DAR. Our chapter is based in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, and our members come from many parts of the area and beyond.

Our Chapter

In keeping with the purpose of the National Society, chapter members work together on numerous projects in order to promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism. We all have busy lives, so our projects offer ways to contribute that fit our schedules. We keep in touch across our many service projects through monthly meetings, where we enjoy brunch, an informative program, a business session, and socializing.

We invite you to contact our chapter registrar who will help you get started in becoming a member of DAR, including tracing your heritage to find an American Revolutionary War Patriot.

Chapter Namesake

Our chapter and Lake Havasu trace their names to the Havasupai Tribe, known as the People of the Blue Green Water. Supai, Arizona, located below the rim of the Grand Canyon, has been home to the Havasupai Tribe for over 1,000 years. Tribal lands include beautiful Havasu Canyon and Falls.

Lake Havasu and the London Bridge

Located on the majestic Colorado, the 45‑mile‑long lake was formed by Parker Dam in the 1930s. Lake Havasu City got its start during World War II as an Army Air Corps rest camp. About two decades later Mr. Robert P. McCulloch, chairman of McCulloch Oil Corporation, established it as a city.


Mr. McCulloch needed a bridge to an island which was created when a channel was cut through to improve water flow for his projects. The City of London needed to replace the bridge which had spanned the Thames for 140 years, and Mr. McCulloch bought it for $2.6 million. Each block was carefully removed, marked, and shipped to Arizona, and over a three‑year‑period it was meticulously reconstructed, still bearing the scars from both world wars. A crowd of 100,000 witnessed its dedication in October 1971, and it continues to draw millions of visitors to our city where it is appreciated on a sunny or foggy day.
