DAR Marker Dedication

Photograph of the dedication of a DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution) marker commemorating the location of the Baptist Mission to the Shawnee Indians in 1929. The site, called Mission Ridge, is located near 55th and Walmer in what was later Mission, Kansas. The location was also the site of the first printing press in Kansas in 1833. DAR members pull a fabric cover from the granite monument, which reads "To commemorate Baptist Mission to Shawnee Indians." A crowd is gathered around the monument, which stands in front of a shingle-roofed building.
