History

DAR and Meadow Garden

In 1900, the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution purchased Meadow Garden and placed it in the care of the Georgia State Society, which has maintained the historic home and shared it with the public for more than 118 years.

On opening day, November 21, 1901, NSDAR Vice-President General, Mrs. S. C. B. Morgan, proclaimed, “what had been accomplished in restoring Meadow Garden proved of what the American woman is capable.” The opening and restoration began a proud tradition of preserving this historically significant building.

Visitors who join us at Meadow Garden are stepping into history. We welcome you to become a part of this 119-year tradition as you tour one of the oldest house museums in the United States.
