Grand Canyon Chapter DAR completes historical trail marker project | Scottsdale Independent

Scottsdale-chartered Grand Canyon Chapter National Society Daughters of the American Revolution commemorated the finished restoration of the Stoneman Trail Military Route Marker Saturday, March 19 at McDowell Mountain Regional Park.

The Stoneman Road was an important conduit between 1870 and 1890 for shipping supplies from Fort Whipple in Prescott to Fort McDowell near present-day Fountain Hills.  The route, of which only minimal traces remain, was named after General George Stoneman.  On April 10, 1890, Fort McDowell was vacated by the U.S. military and became Fort McDowell Indian Reservation.
