Kentucky Daughters rescued historic Duncan Tavern from the wrecking ball in 1940 and preserved this treasure as its state headquarters, in keeping with a National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (NSDAR or DAR) goal of restoring and maintaining historical sites. Now fully renovated and open for tours and events, Kentucky Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution (KSDAR) is committed to continual improvement of the Tavern, its history and its collections. The John Fox, Jr., Genealogical Library at Duncan Tavern is open to the public. Please call or write for hours of operation.
