Field Trips 2018
Daniel Boon Home & Village Trip April 14, 2018
Our visit to the Historical Daniel Boone Home and Village founded 1868 in early April was the first for many thank you to Sue Nelson for putting this trip in the suggestion box. The weather held out for us to roam the grounds and enjoy the sights before us. The nearly 300 acre site includes the Daniel Boone home, adjoining village and surrounding property. What a wonderful gift to the people of St Charles County by Lindenwood University. From these shared photographs from our members you can feel the enchantment of the property.
