The Friends of Koreshan State Park has received a matching grant in the amount of $8,050.00 from the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution for the design and production of the new interpretive signs recently installed in the historic areas of Koreshan State Park.

Membership is open to women with a proven descent from a man or woman who aided the cause of liberty for what would become the United States of America.
