The Mormon Trail

(Map of Iowa with the trail segments outlined)

Determined and authenticated
by the Historical Department
of Iowa, 1911.

This monument was erected in 1917
by the Iowa Daughters of the
American Revolution in memory of
the pioneers who followed this
trail and its tributaries.

We cross the prairie as of old
the pilgrims crossed the sea,
to make west as they the east
the homestead of the free.
Whittier

September 11, 1849 was located
the townsite of Chariton.
