The Historic Robert Jenkins House is truly an “American Treasure,” evidenced by a Save America’s Treasures grant awarded in September 2021 by the Department of the Interior, National Park Service. The grant, funded by the Historic Preservation Fund, will help pay for the repair and restoration of the house’s slate roof, upper masonry and aging infrastructure. 

The Hendrick Hudson Chapter of the DAR was chartered in 1896. A nonpartisan organization welcoming eligible women without regard to race, creed, or religion, it includes 130 members who trace their lineage back to a patriot in the American Revolution–whether serving as soldier, shopkeeper, or seamstress. The mission of the DAR is to promote historic preservation, education, and patriotism. 

The chapter owns and maintains its meeting house, the Historic Robert Jenkins House, at 113 Warren Street in Hudson. The chapter and the chapter house can be accessed at, and (518) 828-9764.
