Start the holiday season by enjoying the simple pleasures of the American Frontier. As night falls, thousands of candles are lit along with bonfires to create a soft glow throughout the village and Boone Home. Guests are offered hot chocolate and wassail as they make their way down the lantern lit paths to the many shops of yesteryear. Each building will be dressed in period décor and offer a glimpse at what life was like during the 19th century. Artisans, musicians, and town folk populate the village and Boone Home greeting and entertaining visitors.
The Historic Daniel Boone Home is a four-story Georgian-style mansion that was built overlooking the Femme Osage Valley. The building features four floors and seven fireplaces. The Boonesfield Village is a collection of buildings that have moved to the site from the local area and used to simulate a frontier town.
