With experience restoring fine historical homes across the east coast, Hampton Barringer Luzak has also worked as a casting director, marketing and sales professional, and reporter and producer for MSNBC. Hampton Luzak also belongs to community organizations such as The Colonial Dames of America.

The National Society of The Colonial Dames of America has existed since 1891 to encourage recognition of worthy buildings, persons, and events integral to the founding of the United States. Today, the society continues to preserve and restore sites of historical interest, as well as empower American citizens.

Early in the society’s history, the Dames provided immigrants with resources to assist them with integration into their new homeland. Today, they have identified a need for additional education regarding civic society and consequently have begun to develop new programs to supply this need through the public education system.

At the same time, the Dames continue their welcome of immigrants through their naturalization programs. These programs include hosting welcoming ceremonies for newly-naturalized citizens followed by special receptions and gifts of US flags and related items.
