About the Daughters of the American Revolution

The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, founded in 1890, is a service organization dedicated to service to the Nation. It is comprised of 51 state societies and more than 2,900 chapters in the United States as well as many Units Overseas. The National Society is organized into nine reporting divisions.

Its objectives are Historic Preservation, Promotion of Education and Patriotic Endeavor. The President General is the official spokesman for the National Society.

The National Society owns an entire city block, bounded by 17th, 18th, C and D Street, Northwest, in one of the most beautiful sections of Washington, DC. There are three adjoining and connecting structures: Memorial Continental Hall built in 1905, Constitution Hall built in 1929, and the Administration Building, with the original portion constructed in 1923 and enlarged in 1948. In 1979, eight additional offices were added to the Administration Building. This is the largest group of buildings in the world built, owned and maintained exclusively by women.
