Historic Preservation

Our Unique History

Being in the history-rich District of Columbia, Daughters have placed hundreds of historical markers on buildings, gravesites, trails, and even trees across the District to raise awareness for preservation of these sites, as well as honor the significance where history was made.


DCDAR has submitted entries to the NSDAR Historic Sites and Properties Database as well as contributed materials and items to the NSDAR Museum and Americana Collection.


Members, past and present, have volunteered many hours to collect, digitize, and preserve historical, genealogical, and photographic records for future generations. DCDAR has an archive room at its chapter house where its history is stored and preserved.
