On behalf of the members of the Georgia State Society, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the Georgia State Society web site. The state of Georgia is proud of the role it played in securing American independence in 1776. Every corner of this state, every town, however large or small, has some historical significance; everywhere you may look there is an historic site or landmark to explore. Several signers of the Declaration of Independence called Georgia home; the Georgia State Society is most proud of "Meadow Garden," home of George Walton, the youngest to sign the Declaration.

Georgia Daughters are proud of their Revolutionary heritage and put in thousands of hours a year in preservation activities and in educating visitors and Georgia youth. Perhaps you have a Revolutionary ancestor in your family as well! The Georgia State Society gladly welcomes inquiries about Society membership.

Please visit our site again soon! We always welcome your comments and questions.

Mrs. Virginia Grace Lingelbach, State Regent 2012-2014

The State Regent's project will encourage Georgia Daughters to give generously in support of two exciting projects being undertaken at our beautiful complex of buildings in Washington, D.C., specifically the removal and restoration of the DAR Library lay lights and the sponsorship of the restoration of the DAR Library chandeliers and sconces. Support will also be raised for Meadow Garden, with emphasis on the much needed preservation of the interior of the house as well as conservation of the period pieces.

The Georgia State Society is proud to own and maintain Meadow Garden, an historic house museum in the heart of downtown Augusta. Meadow Garden was the home of George Walton, one of the youngest signers of the Declaration of Independence. Tours are available Monday-Friday from 10:00am to 4:00pm and Saturdays by appointment. For more information, visit the Meadow Garden Web Site.
