to the Washington State Society DAC website!
The Daughters of the American Colonists is a lineage society dedicated to patriotism, education, and historic preservation. We are also about friendship and community service. This website is designed to tell you about our state organization and encourage your participation. Please come inside to learn more about the Washington State Society. We have gathered information that you should find informative and interesting.

Our members are all descendants of a man or woman who rendered patriotic or civil service to the American Colonies prior to 4 July 1776. Perhaps you have a Colonial ancestor in your family as well! While we are a lineage organization, we are also a service organization. Washington Daughters are active throughout their communities promoting Patriotism, Education, and Historic Preservation.

Our National Theme is "Inspiring excitement and curiosity for a critical period in our nation's history through the use of current technology." My project for our state is to mark a site in the Snohomish County area on the Old Military Road built in the 1850s between Fort Vancouver and Fort Bellingham. As one of the oldest roads in the State of Washington, Military Road facilitated early settlement, opened important supply lines between strategically established military forts, and became a productive thoroughfare.

To learn more about the National Society, follow the link above to NSDAC. If you are interested in membership, please contact the chapter nearest you, or our State Registrar.

As Washington State Regent and on behalf of the Washington State Daughters, welcome to our website.
