The Historic Daniel Boone Home at Lindenwood Park

In April 2016, the Historic Daniel Boone Home and surrounding property in Defiance was gifted to the people of St. Charles County by Lindenwood University. The home and property now is called the Historic Daniel Boone Home at Lindenwood Park.

The site includes the Historic Daniel Boone Home, adjoining the 66-acre Village historic site, and more than 200 acres of surrounding property. The County continues to operate the Village complex, including the Boone Home, as a tourist site. 

Welcome Visitors! A Special Note About Tours and School Groups


We are happy to help visitors and area students learn about Daniel Boone, Missouri history and pioneer life throughout the year.

Accessibility 


The Historic Daniel Boone Home at Lindenwood Park encourages all people to come and visit this historic site. Due to the age of the buildings and the need to preserve them, not all buildings have been modified and made wheelchair accessible. At this point in time, the Historic Daniel Boone Home is only partially wheelchair accessible.

For tours to the Boone Home, the main floor and lower level are accessible by wheelchair. However, the third level is only accessed by stairs. For tours of the village, all pathways are gravel. Most of the buildings do have one to two stairs leading into the building.

For further questions, please call 636-949-7535 or email parks@sccmo.org.

Bringing History to Life


Step into history at the Historic Daniel Boone Home at Lindenwood Park. The Boone Home is nestled upon the rolling hills of wine country and overlooks the Femme Osage Valley. This beautiful setting represents life in the early 1800s and brings the legacy of Daniel Boone to life. Within the thick limestone walls, stories of a daring man offer a glimpse into family matters, risky adventures and hard-fought battles.

Today the Boone Home overlooks the village, a simulated town comprised of more than a dozen 19th Century buildings. Each building originated from within 50 miles of the property. Buildings such as the general store, school house and grist mill offer a peek into life on the Missouri frontier.

The mission of the Boone Home and village is to provide a center that fully integrates learning on all education levels; preserves and protects the historical structures, collections and natural resources that comprise the facility; and interprets the early American frontier experience in Missouri as exemplified by the Boone family and their contemporaries.
