2. DAR Centennial Park Marker
The marker is located at the right of the photo. The marker to the left is "Site of the Town of Nashville". The foundation visible to the left of the flagpole most likely was once the location of the red rock DAR monument mentioned in the marker's text. However, that monument is now missing.
