Missouri Daughters ...
Historic preservation is one of the three primary goals of the National Society Daughters of the American Reservation. Missouri Daughters have been actively involved in marking sites, landmarks, trails, and institutions that represent a significant part of our Missouri history and culture since 1894, including many historic court houses and century farms located throughout the "Show Me" state.
Cold Water Cemetery and Roslyn Heights are among the many sites listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a direct result of the efforts of Missouri Daughters. Other sites and properties include train depots, homes, court houses, and other institutions.
The historic Ste. Genevieve Academy, the oldest school this side of the Mississippi, was designated by the National Park Service as a National Landmark in 1960 and rededicated by the Missouri DAR in 2009.
