Overview
More
Nathan Boone was a genuine Missouri icon – a hunter, soldier, surveyor, and businessman. Boone carried his father’s name – he was the youngest son of Daniel Boone – deep into the Missouri wilderness. His last home, preserved at Nathan Boone Homestead State Historic Site, is now a place to travel back to the 1830s. Come explore his home and the cemeteries associated with it and learn more about one of the families that defined early Missouri.

I finally was able to stop in on a whim. I had no idea what I would come across and my expectations were probably pretty low. I was blown away. First off, the grounds are immaculately kept. It makes for a wonderful short hike and...More
