Daniel Boone Home Souvenir Plate Defiance Missouri by trudysattic
Daniel Boone Home, Defiance, Missouri. While Daniel Boone is most frequently associated with the state of Kentucky, he spent the last years of his life in Missouri. He started construction on this home in 1803. It was finished in 1810. The hand-quarried stone walls are 2 ft thick and the beams and woodwork in the home are black walnut. Boone died here in 1820.
The Old Peace Chapel was built in New Melle in the 1800s and was originally a general store and dance hall. At the turn of the century, the building was bought by a German Evangelical congregation and remodeled into a church. The church was brought to the Daniel Boone Home and Village site in 1983.
