Overview
More
The Historic Daniel Boone Home at Lindenwood Park features the home of the legendary hero Daniel Boone and his family. The four-story, Georgian style home was built in the 1800's overlooking the Femme Osage Valley. The home, even by today's standards, is still considered large. The village, located behind the home, is comprised of over a dozen 19th century buildings including the Old Peace Chapel, grist mill, schoolhouse, and carpenter's shop. Together these buildings help visitors understand life on the Missouri frontier. As a county park, visitors are welcome to walk around the grounds at their leisure. Guided tours are available of the Boone Home and/or village. Group tours and school group programs available with reservations. Not all buildings are handicap accessible. The Old Peace Chapel is available to rent for weddings and private services. The enhanced shelter is also available for evening rentals.

Decided to visit since it was a drizzly morning. We received a free pamphlet for a self guided tour. Interesting and informative.

I've visited 3 times the first as a teen, then once when my own children were young and again when they were grown. I would recommend visiting at least once in your life time, lots of history and beauty here.
