Special to the Globe
The DAR Marker at the Santa Fe Trail tracks is located at the Santa Fe Trail rut site west of Howell on Highway 50 in Ford County.

For the commemoration of the 200th anniversary of the Santa Fe Trail the Dodge City/Fort Dodge/Cimarron chapter of the Santa Fe Trail Association is spotlighting sites along the trail in Ford and Gray Counties.

This week we are highlighting the DAR marker at the Santa Fe Trail rut site west of Howell on Highway 50. This marker was moved from east of Cimarron.

For more information, visit websites www.santafetrail.org and www.santafetrail200.org for information about the trail. Also information about the Santa Fe Trail can be found on Facebook.
