Nathan and Olive Boone Homestead State Historic Site

Park Information

Nathan Boone was a genuine Missouri icon – a hunter, soldier, surveyor and businessman. Boone carried his father’s name – he was the youngest son of Daniel Boone – deep into the Missouri wilderness. His wife, Olive, was the resourceful caretaker of the homestead. She played a vital role in her family's survival on the frontier and allowed Nathan to lead the adventurous lifestyle for which he is known.

The Boones’ last home, preserved at Nathan and Olive Boone Homestead State Historic Site, is now a place to travel back to the 1830s. Come explore the Boone home and the cemeteries associated with it, and learn more about one of the families that defined early Missouri.
