The last month, we have been moving steadily along the path of the Lewis and Clark trail. Between traveling, exploring and poor Wi-Fi, I continue to fall farther behind. While still at the starting point in St Charles, MO. we also visited the final home of a true American legend, Daniel Boone. It is just a few miles from St Charles. His final home is preserved and additional buildings of that era have been moved to his farm.
He continued an active life until his death in 1820 at the age of 86. In addition to the farm and his duties as magistrate for the area, he still enjoyed exploring the country far and wide.
A visit to the site provides a glimpse of his life beyond the legends made famous by TV and movies.
A must see for early American history buffs.
