Daughters of the American Revolution

Description And Comments

The Daughters of the American Revolution complex consists of Constitution Hall and Memorial Continental Hall, which contains a museum and a library. Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) is a women’s organization dedicated to promoting patriotism through non-political volunteerism. All members must prove lineal descent from a Revolutionary patriot.

Constitution Hall is the most well known of the DAR structure’s sections. Washington, D.C.s largest concert hall, it opened in 1929 as the DAR convention site and every U.S. President since Calvin Coolidge has attended an event here. Constitution Hall is still the go-to for large events in the city. The library is also very impressive as it is one of the country’s largest genealogical research centers. Visitors are welcome to search their family history Monday through Friday from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm and Saturday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. The attached museum tells story of the American home with 31 period rooms and 2 galleries and has the same operating hours as the library.
