“Liberty, Fraternity, and Unity Since 1892”
The National Headquarters of the National Society United States Daughters of 1812, is located in Washington, DC. In 1928, the society purchased a three-story brick, Queen Anne style, house at 1461 Rhode Island Avenue NW, which was built in 1884 by Rear Admiral John H. Upshur, USN (1823-1917). For over three quarters of a century, dedicated members have donated books to the library, historic artifacts and memorabilia to the museum, and furnished the house with period furniture. In 1992, the Society purchased the late-Victorian house immediately next-door at 1463 Rhode Island, NW. The first floor, houses the N.S.U.S.D. of 1812 Memorial Library, which contains many holdings on genealogical research and scholarly studies on the War of 1812 period. The second floor of the new building, occupies the 1812 Museum. It is an exceptional facility dedicated to the 1784-1815 time period. In 1997, the property was placed on the National Register of Historic Places by the United States Department of the Interior.
