The Historic Daniel Boone Home
Step into history at The Historic Daniel Boone Home. The 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 and 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. Today the Boone Home sits on nearly 300 acres and overlooks the village, a simulated town comprised of more than a dozen 19th century buildings. Each building originated from within 50 miles of the property. Buildings such as the general store, school house and grist mill offer a peek into life on the Missouri frontier. We are happy to help visitors and area students learn about Daniel Boone, Missouri history and pioneer life throughout the year. However, this means that we are sometimes limited on what types of tours we can offer other visitors when our field trips are on site. If you are interested in visiting us, especially on weekday mornings, please call ahead of time to learn what we can offer. Self-guided tours of the village grounds are free, but there is a charge to tour The Historic Daniel Boone Home. We can't wait to show you around! Visit our Tours page or call the park at 636-798-2005 to learn more about Home and School Group Tour opportunities. During winter (Dec. 16-March 1), the park is open but the gift shop and guided tours are available only on weekends. Check our website for specific hours. The Historic Daniel Boone Home is closed Christmas Eve, Christmas and New Year’s Day.
