For over One Hundred Fifteen Years, The Connecticut Chapter has supported the objectives of the National Society (NSDFPA) through:
• Congenial Fellowship - Women who support similar objectives which honor our ancestors who struggled together for life, liberty, home, and country during the Colonial and Revolutionary eras
• Historical Preservation- To support a variety of projects that preserve our nation’s written records and heritage of these eras, and to recognize achievement in American History in schools
• Service to Country- To recognize or assist those in service to their country; ROTC, Military Academies, & Veterans.
We are proud that The Connecticut Chapter is the "First" Chapter to have been officially formed under The National Society of Daughters of Founders and Patriots of America (NSDFPA) on June 4, 1901.
"No doubt, the Daughters of 1901 were just as proud of their Ancestors as we are of ours today"
*The National Society Daughters of Founders and Patriots of America was founded by Miss Eugenia Washington, co-founder of the Daughters of American Revolution, DAR in 1898.
