Daniel Boone Home is a historic site in Defiance, Missouri, United States. The house was built by [2 ] Daniel Boone's youngest son Nathan Boone, who lived there with his family until they moved further south. Although extant original sources place Daniel Boone's home further west, near Marthasville, modern legend has evolved stating that Daniel lived here. Apparently he did spend the last few weeks of his life here with Nathan's family. [3 ] [4 ]
The architecture of the home is
Georgian style, and other various styles among the collection of 19th century buildings that make up the adjacent Boonesfield Village.
The house was added to the
National Register of Historic Places in 1973. [5 ]
The Old Peace Chapel and other historic buildings have been relocated to create Boonesfield Village at the Daniel Boone Home historic site. In this panoramic image the Boone home sits on the hillside towards the left.
