The Mary Chilton Chapter is dedicated to historical preservation. Through the  Mary Chilton DAR Foundation, we regularly contribute to restoration projects. We contribute to the Siouxland Heritage Museum, the History Club, the South Dakota Historical Society Foundation, and many others.

The Mary Chilton Chapter, NSDAR placed the first centennial statue in the South Dakota State Capitol rotunda and has worked side-by-side with the Minnehaha County Historical Society to place several historical markers around our local area.

We annually volunteer as docents for Pioneer Lane at the Sioux Empire Fair.  Visitors can stop by and see what it was like to live in South Dakota more than 100 years ago.
