Daughters of the American Revolution Monument:

The Daughters of the American Revolution marked the Santa Fe Trail in 1910 and a monument sits within the historic Santa Fe Plaza in front of the Palace of the Governors. New Mexico was a Territory at the time and the DAR State Regent, Mary Catherine Prince was instrumental in having these monuments placed after purchasing all 23 for the sum of $700.   When the monument was placed in 1910 and celebrated in 1911, DAR State Regent, Mary Catherine Prince (1894-1914), wife of the New Mexico Territorial Governor, L. Bradford Prince, was the one who spearheaded the project of placing the monuments along the trail through New Mexico.
