Drum Hill members visit Trumbull House

Members of the Drum Hull Chapter NSDAR who are participating in the DAR's "New Horizons Course" visited the Governor Jonathan Trumbull House and Wadsworth Stable at Lebanon, Conn., earlier this month.  

The house was built by his father for Jonathan Trumbull who was the colonial governor of Connecticut before and during the American Revolution and was the only one of the colonial governors to support the patriot cause during the Revolution. His home is now owned by the Connecticut Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) and is on the National Register of Historic Places. Information about the house can be found at www.govtrumbullhousedar.org.  Also worth visiting on the Lebanon Green is the War Office, now owned by the Connecticut Sons of the American Revolution, where over 1000 meetings were held during the period 1775 to 1781.

The Drum Hill Chapter has more than 100 members principally from Wilton, Ridgefield, Redding and Weston. Membership in the DAR is open to any woman over age 18 who is directly descended from a patriot who aided the American cause during the Revolution. Interested women should contact regent@drumhilldar.org
