Bringing History to Life...
Step into history at the Historic Daniel Boone Home & Heritage Center. The Daniel Boone Home is nestled upon the rolling hills of wine country and overlooks the Femme Osage Valley. This beautiful setting represents life in the early 1800s from its adventures to its lifelong struggles. The Boone Home brings the legacy of Daniel Boone to life. Within the thick limestone walls, stories of a daring man offer a glimpse into family matters, risky adventures, and hard-fought battles.
