Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

You always hear about Daniel Boone, but very few people know he had quite a legacy in Missouri.

It is like stepping into another world. The state office trailer is what you find first. Then you have to walk to the old homestead of Nathan Boone. If you are not up on Missouri History, Nathan played a very important part in Missouri History, much more than his father, Daniel Boone did. Daniel died in Nathan's home in Defiance, Missouri and later Nathan moved to this homestead in Western Missouri on the prairie. This site is very much a work in progress, but the house is there and restored. The feeling of being out on the land is also there. I will be very interested to see what is done with the site in the future. There is a fee for a guided tour.
