The Daughters of Utah Pioneers (D.U.P.) was organized April 11, 1901, with the stated purpose “to perpetuate the names and achievements of the men, women and children who were the pioneers in founding this commonwealth [Utah]: by preserving old landmarks, marking historical places, collecting artifacts and histories, establishing a library of historical matter, and securing manuscripts, photographs, maps, and all such data as shall aid in perfecting a record of the Utah pioneers.”
To date, the D.U.P. has placed 546+ historical markers on physical locations representative of the history of the vast Westward movement of the Utah Pioneers. These markers commemorate places, events, or persons of particular historical significance to Utah (and, indeed, the entire American West).
These markers can be found in eleven countries (Canada, Denmark, England, Germany, Holland, Ireland, Norway, Scotland, Sweden, Switzerland, Wales) and thirteen States (Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Louisiana, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Wyoming)--although the majority of them are located in Utah and Idaho.
The goal of this category is to waymark all of the historic markers placed by the D.U.P. Organization around the world.
There is also a list at http://dupinternational.org/ of the markers and where they are located.
