The Danish American Heritage Society (DAHS) was founded in 1977 to explore and record the history and heritage of the Danish presence in North America.
Back in 1977 the DAHS founders chose to use the word "heritage" rather than "history" in the organization’s name to include broader activities such as sponsoring conferences and cooperating with other organizations on joint projects.
The DAHS believes that there is an intrinsic value in identifying, understanding, and preserving our Danish heritage. We devote our energies to achieving that goal.
The DAHS and its sister organizations, Danish American Archives and Library, Danish Immigrant Museum--Grand View University, and Museum of Danish America, work together to preserve the history and culture of the Danish-American experience.
