House of Gordon USA
Welcome to the
House of Gordon USA!

We are the families of the Scottish Clan Gordon in the United States of America. Our mission is to preserve
and promote our unique heritage and Celtic culture, as we enjoy the fellowship and support of family and
friends. Come Join Us at the Gordon Tent!

The Gordon name is synonymous with the rich history of Scotland and dates back to the 11th Century. It is a
name to be proud of and deserves your interest and support. The Board of Directors of House of Gordon USA
invites you to join our Clan Society.


We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to create, stimulate and sustain an interest in
Scotland, its history, traditions and culture; to bring together people of Gordon heritage; to
promote goodwill and understanding among its members and the general public; and to perform
charitable works.
The “Charles O. Gordon Memorial Scholarship Fund” provides scholarships to aid our
youth in further studies of the Scottish arts and education. Our Scotland charity is the Gordon Highlander
Museum in Aberdeen, Scotland which tells the history of "the finest regiment that ever was." We honor the
men and women of Clan Gordon who are serving or have served in the defence of our nation with the Wall Of
Honor. We promote genealogical research, and the Gordon DNA project, host tents at various Celtic Festivals
& Highland Games across the USA and many other worthy projects which encompass our Clan Gordon history
and cultural heritage as well as providing community service.

Congratulations to the 2017 Recipients of the Charles O. Gordon Memorial
Scholarship for the Celtic Arts!

This year we are happy to announce that we have awarded three scholarships to three
outstanding applicants. The Board had a very difficult time deciding on who to award our
scholarship to this year as we had several wonderful young Highland Dancers applying for our
scholarship. Each one had very real needs and each one showed an incredible amount of
dedication and talent with clearly defined goals. The Charles O. Gordon Memorial Scholarship was
founded at the 2006 AGM at Grandfather Mountain Highland Games by vote of the membership and
we set out the goal of furthering the Scottish Arts and our rich cultural heritage by giving a
helping hand to our youth who wish to hone their talents and accomplishments in the traditional
arts of Scotland. The three recipients this year have already begun sharing their experiences with
others to help perpetuate the art by volunteering, teaching, and mentoring others. All have goals
to continue along that path and we are very happy to award Miss Emma Schiff of Oakdale, CA, Miss
Megan Ashworth of Simi Valley, CA, and Miss Autumn Giancchina of Clearwater, FL our scholarship.
For more on these fine young ladies, please visit our
scholarship page.
