     The State Societies are the backbone of DAR.  The Georgia State Society Daughters of the American Revolution (GSSDAR) acts as the liaison between local chapters and the National Society. Georgia has over 100 chapters overseen by the GSSDAR. 


    The Georgia State Society hosts events throughout the year to educate the membership on the Society and its many endeavors. All members are invited to attend the district workshops, held in late summer, and the Georgia State Conference, held in late spring. These events are routinely moved around the state to encourage increased participation from all corners of Georgia. In 2014 our chapter, Philadelphia Winn, hosted the annual state conference at the Atlanta Evergreen Marriott Conference Resort in breathtaking Stone Mountain Park.

     Georgia Daughters are proud to own and maintain Meadow Garden, home of George Walton, one of the youngest Signers of the Declaration of Independence. Walton served in the Continental Congress, was a Colonel in the Georgia Militia, and was the second Governor of Georgia. This historic property in Augusta, Georgia, showcases Colonial Georgia history through preservation and education. Tours of the grounds and the museum are available five days a week.
