Re-Living A Little Bit of History

Today I will be re-living a bit of history. 87 years ago, El Toyon Chapter NSDAR placed a bronze plaque on a tree marking the spot that Captain John C. Fremont and the members of his expedition made camp on 26 March 1844. The spot was on the property of the "Dodge House", home to founding members of El Toyon Chapter Emily Dodge and her sister Anna Dodge. Several years ago the tree was removed and the plaque was given to the San Joaquin Historical Museum for safe-keeping.






Today, 87 years later, the plaque will be installed on the restored Dodge House during a re-dedication ceremony.











In 1923 El Toyon Chapter NSDAR placed a bronze plaque marking the spot where John C. Fremont and the members of his expedition made camp in 1844
