As the Utah State Regent, it is my honor to present the beautiful DAR Drinking Fountain and Monument, that was dedicated in1905 by the Spirit of Liberty Chapter, Utah’s first DAR Chapter. It is currently located in a flower bed within the park.
The Monument is made of splendid Vermont granite and featured two drinking fountains, one for patrons and one for dogs. Upon approval from the Salt Lake City Mayor, the Monument will be professionally cleaned as a part of this State Regent’s Historic Preservation Projects.
I would also like to express my deepest gratitude to the State Historian Lisa Hoyt, Salt Lake Valley Chapter Regent Janet Otterness, and Historic Preservation Committee State Chair Cindy Toone for their support of the preservation of DAR Monuments and Markers in Utah.
Preserving Our Historic DAR Legacy,
Utah State Regent
