Regent’s Welcome

Welcome to the official website of the Rhode Island Independence Chapter of the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution! Our chapter serves the communities of Providence, East Providence, Cranston, North Providence, and Johnston.

Organized on February 22, 1910, our chapter held its first formal meeting on Rhode Island Independence Day, May 4, 1910, in the Old State House on Benefit Street in Providence. We are a growing, active chapter with a rich history dedicated to our mission of promoting patriotism, preserving American history, and supporting education.

We invite you to explore the site to learn more about how we’re serving our community. If you are interested in partnering with us or supporting our work, feel free to contact us. Thank you for visiting!
