The cabin was originally built in 1795.
It was sacred ground to be standing there, touching the wood that he touched.
To see into the past, thinking of his time there, the coffee he drank, the food he cooked, the misty mornings that he stood at the window.
The ghost-bumps were real in my heart, and on my arms.
It was an honor.
In the spring of 1795, Daniel Boone & his wife returned from Virginia, and the cabin was built. He, his wife & 10 children lived in the cabin until 1799 when they moved to Missouri. It is told that they bored out an oak tree and floated down the river to Missouri (Louisiana Territory).
Daniel Boone’s cabin now stands on private property on Hwy 68, 3 miles from the traffic island on Hwys 68 & 36. A gravel road close to the historic marker sign leads to the cabin.
