Monument Chapter is one of the oldest and, with over 100 members, one of the largest Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) chapter in Minnesota.
The Monument Chapter was chartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota on Dec 11, 1900. On Feb 2, 2013, the chapter charter location was moved from Minneapolis to Edina to more accurately reflect that most members live in the
southwest metro including Edina, south Minneapolis, Hopkins, Eden Prairie, and Bloomington. Chapter meetings rotate
throughout these cities.
