In 1955, DAR petitioned Congress to set aside September 17-23 annually to be dedicated for the observance of Constitution Week. The resolution was later adopted by the U.S. Congress and signed into public law on August 2, 1956, by President Dwight D. Eisenhower.

The Daughters of the American Revolution also erected a structure that is built in tribute to the Constitution of the United States. DAR Constitution Hall in Washington, DC. It is a performing arts center that opened in 1929.
