Missouri Adventures: Daniel Boone Burial Site

Tuesday, July 9, 2013

Last week, on my way home from berry picking, I saw a sign for the Daniel Boone Burial Site in Marthasville, Missouri. Are you kidding me, I thought, An adventure within an adventure? YES. My detour took me down a country road, running parallel to another section of the Katy Trail. Sweet mimosas scented the air and rich rural vistas made my heart swell. I stopped by what looked like Mr. Boone's original homestead, only to discover that the land had belonged to his wife, Rebecca. One of the volunteers I spoke with informed me that the area was currently being restored, complete with a replica school house, barn, and newly installed Bed & Breakfast. While the burial grounds were open, the rest of the site is scheduled to open to the public later this year.
