The Georgia Room, located in the NSDAR Headquarters, is modeled after a room from Peter Tondee's Tavern in Savannah, Georgia. The Tavern, no longer standing, was in business from 1770-1785. Objects seen in the room are based on Tondee's probate inventory. Taverns fulfilled numerous functions providing food, drink, lodging, and rooms for entertainment and meetings. Tondee’s Tavern served as a meeting place for the “Sons of Liberty,” and was the site of the raising of the first Liberty Pole and the first reading of the Declaration of Independence in Georgia. After Peter Tondee’s death, his widow, Lucy Mouse Tondee, operated the tavern until 1783.

A quick tip from Bea...
"When you are ready to get started, contact a local chapter directly and express your interest in joining! There are many chapters located throughout the state of Georgia. We encourage you to attend your local chapter meetings while pursuing membership. It is a wonderful way to learn about the works of the NSDAR. Each chapter has a chapter registrar that aids prospective members as they gather the necessary documentation that must accompany all applications. They will walk you through the process, step-by-step, and answer any lineage documentation questions you might have...."
