THE KENTUCKY SOCIETY OF THE DAUGHTERS OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION

Welcome to the Kentucky Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, a women's service organization committed to promoting education, historic preservation, and patriotism. Kentucky is proud to be the home of Hindman Settlement School, which was founded by two Kentucky DAR members in 1902: May Stone (Fincastle Chapter) and Katherine Pettit (Lexington Chapter).

 

The Miller Administration champions Hindman's commitment to children with learning differences, especially dyslexia. Half of the state project money from this administration is donated to Hindman in support of their reading programs.

 

The Miller Administration also plans to focus on the Kentucky Period Room at Memorial Continental Hall in Washington.

 

 

 

The Tavern Room

 

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.
