The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America in the State of Colorado is a chapter of The National Society of The Colonial Dames, a lineage organization founded in 1891 by women dedicated to furthering an appreciation of our national heritage through history preservation, patriotic service, and educational projects. The Colorado Chapter is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization.
Members of the State Society volunteer for the Museum Committee led by an elected Chairman. The Committee meets regularly to make decisions about the maintenance of the property and operations of the Museum. A part-time curator is employed and volunteer docents give many hours of their time to provide the public tours and run the educational programs at the Museum.
Over the past five decades the Committee’s goal of historical education has developed and greatly expanded. Students from Colorado Springs and surrounding areas have greatly benefited from the Museum’s resources and educational programs.
This Museum is not supported by federal, state, county, or city governments.
Therefore, the expenses of keeping this lovely house open to the public must be met by the State Society and its members, grants, public donations, gifts in kind, fundraisers, and admissions.
