St. Charles County, Missouri –  Spend this Labor Day weekend having fun with the family at The Historic Boone Home in Defiance! Guests of all ages are invited to explore historic Missouri through living history activities at St Charles County Park’s Labor Day on the Frontier celebration from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 5; and 12 – 3:30 p.m., Sunday, Sept. 6.

During this two-day event, participants will stroll through the 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. Participants will learn how much labor it took to build a strong business, discover tricks of the trade from the carpenter, learn how to map land from the surveyor, and get cooking tips from the baker. For everyone’s safety, only four guests will be allowed inside each building at one time.

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 or retired military and children 4 and under, free.

The park, located at 1868 Highway F, is on the St. Charles County list of National Register of Historic Places. Admission is free and registration is not needed. For more information, call The Historic Daniel Boone Home at 636-798-2005.
