On February 22, 1982, several members of the Utah State Society Daughters of the American Revolution met to see the bronze plaque commemorating the 250th anniversary of the birth of General George Washington in 1732.
The plaque was dedicated by Mrs. James “Joyce” Gordon, Uintah Chapter, NSDAR.
The plaque is located in the Mountain Dell State Park and Golf Course next to the Washington (upper) Pavilion in Parley’s Canyon, about 15 miles east of Salt Lake City, Utah. The plaque is embedded in concrete at ground level.
Two months later, on Arbor Day, April 30, 1982 members of the Utah State Society Daughters of the American Revolution dedicated a beautiful six-foot Colorado Blue Spruce tree planted by the plaque in the Washington Park in the Mountain Dell State Park and Golf Course.
Utah State Regent Mrs. Grant Walter Schaumburg attended. Mrs. Gordon gave a short dedicatory speech and special tribute to General Washington. The Plaque is overseen by the Princess Timpanogos Chapter in Salt Lake City, Utah.
