The Solomon Dean Chapter, Nevada, Iowa, was organized in 1922 by Miss Carolyn Dean, Organizing Regent and Miss Sybil Danskin, who were members at large and became charter members of the local chapter.


In August of 1935 a native boulder, more than four feet in height and weighing over four tons, was placed in the Nevada cemetery.  In October of that same year, a bronze memorial plate bearing the date of the year of organization of Solomon Dean Chapter, and the year of the placement of the Memorial stone was added.

Smaller bronze plates are inscribed with the names of some of the deceased members.
