NSDAR MOTTO: "God, Home and Country"

"At the time of the American Revolution, this part of America was wilderness, wild beasts, and Indians. Before the year 1830, the Indians departed into Oklahoma and white men from Kentucky and Tennessee began to arrive. They found numerous horns of the elk and patches fo beautiful prairie. A trading post known as Elk Horn was established."
