Daniel Boone (1734-1820), known for his role in the exploring and settling of the Kentucky frontier decided that the settlement of Boonesborough had become far too crowded.

In December 1779, Boone and his family established Boone’s Station. At its height, the community had 15 to 20 families, including the Boone, Barrow, Hays, Morgan, Muir, Scholl and, Stinson families.

Situated just 25 minutes southeast of Lexington, this nice historic site should make your list of historic destinations to visit in the region. Take a walking tour to experience the true value of this KY landmark.
