Members support patriotic efforts and honor our veterans and our nation


The Conrad Weiser Society was formed by the members of the Berks County Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). The Society's first meeting was held on June 1, 1895 at the home of it's first (Senior) President, Mrs. Adelaide Ermentrout, on Hill Road in Reading across from, what is now, the Veterans Grove area of City Park.

The icon below will take you to an image of the June 2, 1895, Reading Eagle article about the first meeting:

The society was named after the famous colonial Pennsylvania statesman and diplomat, Conrad Weiser, who lived near present-day Womelsdorf, PA. Through the years, the society has had many members and participated in countless meetings, events and patriotic endeavors. Membership is currently low so meetings and events are being held as opportunities arise. New and additional members are welcome and needed to help re-energize the society. Our members are mentored and led by members of the Berks County Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution and Gov. Joseph Hiester Chapter, Sons of the American Revolution. Additional leadership assistance would also be welcomed.
