The Colonial Dames of America (CDA) is an American organization composed of women who are descended from an ancestor who lived in British America from 1607–1775, and was of service to the colonies by either holding public office, being in the military, or serving the Colonies in some other "eligible" way.
The organization was founded in 1890, shortly before the founding of two similar societies, The National Society of the Colonial Dames of America and the Daughters of the American Revolution.
In the early 2000s the National Society of Colonial Dames of America in the State of West Virginia were responsible for saving the Craik-Patton House from demolition and relocating it.
