What to Wear

The Historic Daniel Boone Home at Lindenwood Park is an indoor and outdoor historic site. Some buildings are heated and air conditioned, but most are not. Because the pathways are mostly gravel, we recommend wearing comfortable walking shoes.

Lunch and Area Amenities

Bring a sack lunch! The park has several picnic tables available for guests to use. The gift shop has light refreshments, but does not provide lunches. If you want to eat out, restaurants and wineries are nearby. Visit the Defiance Merchants Association, Augusta Chamber of Commerce or the New Melle Chamber of Commerce websites for listings.
