Matson Hill Park

About the Park

Matson Hill Park is 475 acres of rugged, heavily forested parkland, offering more than 6 miles of natural surface trails. New gravity-flow mountain bike trails are now open. Additional flow trails continue to be developed and constructed. This historical property is situated in the "Daniel Boone Region" and is perfect for any outdoor getaway or retreat and is open to the public to explore.


The Hays Home

Enjoy a historic adventure in the park at this attraction that is now open to visitors for the first time. Once owned by the grandson of Missouri pioneer Daniel Boone, the renovated home is open for self-guided tours. 

The 1830s stone dwelling features a new interpretive center with artifacts and displays that showcase the Hays and Boone families. The main floor houses exhibits, while the top floor features turn-of-the-century furnishings, including smaller artifacts once owned by family heirs.

Upon arrival, park interpretive staff will greet guests outside and give an overview of the property surrounding the historic house. During these educational experiences, guests will learn about the history of the Hays family and the story of the land established in the scenic Femme Osage Valley and how it relates to the rich history of the region. 

Admission to the historic home is free. For more information or to schedule a tour, call The Historic Daniel Boone Home at 636-798-2005.
