GEORGIA STATE SOCIETY
The Georgia State Society NSDAR is a non-profit, non-political volunteer women’s service organization dedicated to promoting patriotism, education, and historic preservation.
The state of Georgia is proud of the role it played in securing American independence in 1776. Every corner of this state, every town, however large or small, has some historical significance; everywhere you may look there is a historic site or landmark to explore.
Several signers of the Declaration of Independence called Georgia home; the Georgia State Society is most proud of “Meadow Garden,” home of George Walton, one of the youngest to sign the Declaration of Independence. The Georgia State Society is proud to own and maintain Meadow Garden, a historic house museum in the heart of downtown Augusta. Tours are available Tuesday-Saturday from 10:00am to 4:00pm and by appointment. Visit historicmeadowgarden.org to learn more.
Georgia Daughters are proud of their Revolutionary heritage and put in thousands of hours a year in preservation activities and in educating visitors and Georgia youth. Perhaps you have a Revolutionary ancestor in your family as well!
The Georgia State Society gladly welcomes inquiries about Society membership. We have over 110 chapters in cities throughout the state, with members ready and willing to share the DAR story with you. Click on the Chapters button above to find a chapter near you!
