Our name came from an extensive and dense forest of hardwood
Council Grove is one of the twelve locations in the United States chosen to be the site of a "Madonna of the Trail" monument.
Our history is closely tied to early exploration, the Santa Fe Trail, and pioneer days.
It was fitting that a statue of the pioneer mother be placed here.
Council Oak Chapter is the "guardian chapter" for our Madonna.
Also in Council Grove is a DAR marker for the Santa Fe Trail. The photos below show
events surrounding the 100th anniversary of the marker's placement and opening of the
"memory box" which was placed in the base of the stone. It was disappointing that the
elements destroyed the contents of the box. A new box was placed that should endure.
