The National Society Colonial Dames XVII Century was founded in 1915 and aids in the preservation of records and historic sites, fosters interest in historical colonial research, aids in the education of youth and commemorates the heroic deeds of ancestors and founders of the Republic. The society maintains the principles and patriotism which led to the independence of the colonies and the foundation of the United States, maintains a library of heraldry and preserves the lineage and coat-of-arms of Armorial ancestors. Membership is open to women 18 years of age or older who have an ancestor who resided in the colonies prior to 1701. Service projects for The Richard Borden Chapter include Colonial History Programs to Tyler elementary school children, a Colonial Heritage Essay Contest for Tyler middle school students and a Colonial Heritage Month display at the Tyler Public Library. They promote patriotism, participate in grave markings, conduct colonial genealogical and heraldry workshops and support all objectives of the National Society.
