HISTORY

In April of 2021, Valerie King (Chapter Regent of the Color Country Chapter of the National Society of Daughters
of the American Revolution) and Jeanine Vander Bruggen (Member of the Color Country Chapter NSDAR and
Secretary of the Washington County Historical Society) chatted briefly about the DAR presenting an award to
the WCHS.

In early July, they prepared an application which was then sent to the NSDAR for approval. The nomination then
underwent a rigorous approval process which was successful.

The award was presented to representatives of the Washington County Historical Society at a meeting of the
Color Country Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution on September 14, 2021. That meeting
was held in the old Pioneer Courthouse which is being managed by the Washington County Historical Society.
