Established on July 15, 1915, the National Society Colonial Dames XVII Century is a non-profit organization with its headquarters located in Washington D.C. Constructed in 1884, the headquarters building holds historical significance and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Our work is dedicated to the preservation of historic sites and records, promotion of heraldry and coats of arms, and support of charitable projects and education. Through these and many other activities, we acknowledge and honor those individuals whose enduring legacy of virtue, courage and patriotism formed this great nation.

As we enter the second century of our society, we invite you to learn more about our organization and visit our headquarters in Washington, D.C.
The North Carolina Society Colonial Dames XVII Century has created this website to provide information about our organization. The links will direct you to specific topics such as activities, membership requirements, and chapter locations.
In 2015, we celebrated the 100th Anniversary of the National Society and the 65th Anniversary of the North Carolina State Society. We are preserving our past by marking historic sites. Our veterans have benefitted from the money donated to help with refitting homes and providing pets for those who have PTSD. We encourage students to apply for the national and state scholarships.
We would be happy to answer your questions about our society. Join us today.
