CHAPTER ORGANIZED JUNE 1896

The Boonesborough Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution, was organized for the purpose of marking the site of this old fort whose erection was begun the day following the battle of Lexington on April 19, 1775. The monument to these brave pioneer soldiers was unveiled June 5, 1907, with the members of the chapter and some three thousand guests present to witness it. When the flag enshrouding the monument was drawn aside, it showed the following inscription on the marker - "site of Ft. Boonesborough 1775-1783. In memory of the pioneers of Kentucky. Erected by the Boonesborough Chapter D.A.R. 1907."

The chapter has continued striving to carry out its objectives of preservation of historic shrines and celebration of important milestones in our nation's history.
