Daniel Boone's Home - Defiance, MO

On Wednesday we went to Daniel Boone's Home in Defiance, MO. We really enjoyed touring the home and Boonesfield Village which is down behind the home. The village is made up of buildings from the same time period that have been brought in from the surrounding area.

Here we are looking at the home from the valley below where the village is located.

Old Peace Chapel

It is really pretty inside. They wouldn't allow us to take pictures inside but here is a link to a few pictures online. It is actually booked for weddings on occasion.
