Beautiful location in wine country - so once you are done visiting here, wineries are nearby! This is a wonderful trip back in time complete with a mini town on the property.

Very well maintained and friendly staff. The guidebook is an excellent aide in a self guided tour. Can’t wait to go back for the special events this year.

I have recommended the Daniel Boone home to family and friends for twenty years. The Missouri/Boone story is interesting and the docents bring it alive. If you don't learn about the body snatching during your tour, ABSOLUTELY ask about it!
