El Toyon Chapter

Stockton, California

Chapter Activities and Projects

 

 

El Toyon Chapter in Stockton dedicated an historical marker to honor Kit Carson and mark the site where on 26 March 1844 the Fremont Expedition, led by Carson as a scout, made camp on their way back home after successfully mapping a good portion of the West. El Toyon Chapter, NSDAR is committed to keeping history alive not only for the residents of San Joaquin County, but for the entire State of California. The identification and marking of historical landmarks gives the community a sense of pride and encourages their participation in historic preservation.
