Washington Elm Marker

While the City of Trinidad was trimming trees in 2009, they found this marker and contacted the Santa Fe Trail Chapter, NSDAR. The marker had been placed in 1932. It was placed in an area of trees planted in memory of George Washington. The chapter had disbanded in 1982 and re-organized in 2003. Since that time, the chapter has planted a Douglas fir tree near the marker.
