The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) Historic Preservation Medal is a national award that recognizes and honors a person who has done extraordinary work over a long period of time in establishing a historic district, preserving a local landmark, restoring or preserving objects of historic cultural significance, or establishing or participating in oral history projects, youth leadership and education, as it pertains to historic preservation, at the regional, state, and/or national level.

Theresa Kindred Brown received the DAR Historic Preservation Medal in 2017 due to the remarkable work that she has done to save, restore and preserve the historic town of Metcalfe. Brown has also been involved in many volunteer activities in Thomasville and Thomas County. She is an inspiration at the national, state and local level of the Daughters of the American Revolution showing how one woman can change the course of a community and therefore, change history.
