Apache Trail Chapter NSDAR
Apache Trail Chapter, NSDAR, was organized in December 2004 in Apache
Junction, AZ. It was the recipient of First Place Organizing Society from
the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution for the largest
number of members in a newly-organized chapter. The chapter began with 23
members and today has 83.
The historic Apache Trail, northeast of Apache Junction, AZ, winds through some
of the most rugged terrain in Arizona, from the Four Peaks Wilderness Area in the north to
the Superstition Wilderness Area in the south.
The trail includes Lost Dutchman
State Park, Tonto National Forest, Roosevelt Dam, and a ghost town, Goldfield, which is
now a commercialized tourist site reminiscent of an old mining town. Tonto National
Monument is also located near Roosevelt Lake, shown above. There are cliff dwellings
built and occupied by prehistoric Salado people of the 14th century.
