about Daniel Boone Home & Boonesfield Village:
Visitors enjoy seeing the expansive home's seven fireplaces, its ballroom on the top floor, and the walnut mantelpieces on the fireplaces, purportedly carved by Boone himself.
In 1999, Lindenwood University's purchased the home and decided to re-create a village that would reflect the time of the Louisiana Purchase and early statehood. Still in process, Boonesfield Village features over a dozen nineteenth century structures, including a chapel and schoolhouse.
