Daughters of the American Revolution Headquarters

Heritage
 Project

Our phased delivery of preservation and restoration projects has served to conserve and protect this National Historic Landmark and headquarters of the Daughters of the American Revolution. Discrete improvements provide transformative results with impact throughout the complex. The rich-details and opulence of the renewed lobbies set the stage for visitors to Constitution Hall providing a grand entry and a sophisticated space to gather before performances. Inside the hall, we restored the historic character of the stage that serves as the backdrop to the DAR Continental Congress and other events. Our attention to the period details, finishes, and furnishings in the President General’s Reception Room enrich the dignified private function space. In Memorial Centennial Hall, our meticulous restoration of the massive leaded glass lay-light that spans the library forty-six feet above inspires and awes visitors. And our renovation of the Museum Gallery creates an engaging visitor experience to interact with over 600 historic objects.
