The legendary hero Daniel Boone spent the last years of his life in this beautiful stone home owned by his son, Nathan Boone. The four-story Georgian-style house was built overlooking the Femme Osage Valley and is the centerpiece of Lindenwood University's Heritage Center. The Daniel Boone Home and adjoining village offer a glimpse into what life was like for the Boone family and others living on the Missouri frontier. The village is comprised of more than a dozen historic buildings moved from the local area and includes buildings such as a schoolhouse, carpenter shop, grist mill and the Old Peace Chapel. The Historic Daniel Boone Home & Heritage Center is located in Defiance, Missouri, just ten beautiful miles from Interstate 64/40 and Hwy 94 in St. Charles County. Guided tours daily.
