Southern Chapter

The Southern Chapter was started in the San Luis Valley in 1940 as the San Luis Valley Auxiliary of the Territorial Daughters.  The Chapter now encompasses all of Southern Colorado.

 

All members trace their direct ancestry to pioneers that resided in Colorado before August 1, 1876.

 

Activities that this chapter participates in:

 

  • Placing markers at historic sights throughout Southern Colorado.

  • Preserving family histories of our members.

  • Publishing the family histories in our book series.

  • Providing scholarships to college women studying history. Project is undertaken with the all four Territorial Daughters chapters.

  • Presenting historic information to other groups.

  • Holding member meetings throughout the year.
