Welcome to Southern Colorado
Preserving and Perpetuating Southern Colorado's Pioneer History
We are a non-profit group that was founded on February 10, 1910. The Southern Chapter began in 1940 in the San Luis Valley. The Territorial Daughters of Colorado is chartered to perpetuate the memories and traditions of the pioneers who laid the foundation for the State of Colorado; to place and locate markers at such places in the state as may be determined to be of historical interest; to participate in public ceremonies for the preservation of pioneer history; and to make gifts or loans of money or property for charitable, educational, religious or literary purposes.
