Madonna of the Trails
A national project that is continuously supported by the chapter is the work to establish the Old Trails Road as a great National Memorial Highway. In 1911, the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution established a national committee known as the National Old Trails Road Committee whose work was to erect monuments in each of the 12 states through which the National Old Trails Road passes. The Madonna of the Trail is a pioneer woman clasping her baby with her young son clinging to her skirts. This is typical of the work undertaken by the Society. The California Madonna of the Trails Marker is the western-most statue, dedicated on 1 February 1929.
The DAR offers us a unique chance to hone our leadership skills, and each year our members are encouraged to attend the California State DAR Conference as well as the DAR's national gathering, Continental Congress, in Washington, D.C.
