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. Come explore his home and the cemeteries associated with it and learn more about one of the families that defined early Missouri.
With planned landscape restoration and the absence of modern intrusions, the view from the house will not be significantly different than when the Boone family settled here. Prairie grasslands with large areas of open limestone glades surrounded the house. The woodland areas consisted of large groves of ash, walnut and oak trees broken by glades of limestone outcroppings.
The historic site consists of the cabin, remnants of outbuildings, the family and slave cemeteries and 370 acres of the original Boone homestead. The site is currently open and has a small picnic area (grills are available), hiking trails and accessible restrooms with running water.
