St. Charles County, Missouri – Spend this Labor Day weekend having fun with the family at The Historic Boone Home near Defiance! Explore historic Missouri through living history activities during Labor Day on the Frontier from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 31, and noon to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 1. The program is free and open to the public.

During this two-day event, stroll through our historic village and discover different trades of the past through reenactments performed by talented members of the Ox Bow Tavern Living History Group, park staff and volunteers. Learn how much labor it took to build a strong business, discover tricks of the trade from the carpenter, barter with the owner of the general store, and get cooking tips from the baker.   

Guided tours of The Historic Daniel Boone Home also will be available both days with paid admission – adults, $8; seniors 60 and over, $6; children ages 5–12, $5; active/retired military and children 4 and under, free.

Located at 1868 Highway F in Defiance, the Boone Home is nestled in the heart of Historic Missouri 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.
