The Historic Preservation Committee promotes historic preservation through its two awards:  the Historic Preservation Medal and the Historic Preservation Recognition Award. It encourages recognition of significant volunteer efforts at the community, state and national levels.

Oakley is located in St. Francisville, Louisiana, on the Audubon State Historic Site. Oakley is most notably recognized as the site where John James Audubon taught and painted his famous Birds of America. 


LSDAR is passionate about educating America’s youth and supports a variety of different programs, contests, and awards to help further this goal. LSDAR members promote different educational contests and programs in area schools teaching subjects such as the American Revolutionary War, family history/genealogy, the colonial period, and early America.


The LSDAR's collection of genealogical research books is housed adjacent to the genealogy section of the Main Library of the East Baton Rouge Parish Library System.



Patriotism is the foundation of the many DAR activities that take place in local communities across our state. LSDAR members participate in a wide range of patriotic activities including: volunteering at VA hospitals, supporting active duty military, promoting proper Flag etiquette, presenting patriotic awards, assisting and welcoming naturalized citizens.
