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.

I visited during a conference field trip and the tour was excellent. Each guide has a different technique and Dakota made the tour enjoyable. His extensive knowledge about the Boone farm, occupants, and place in history will connect you a little-mentioned part of Springfield's role...More
