Nathan and Olive Boone Homestead State Historic Site

7850 N. State Hwy V, Ash Grove, MO 65604 - United States




Nathan Boone was a genuine Missouri icon – a hunter, soldier, surveyor and businessman and the youngest son of the legendary Daniel Boone. He carried his father’s legacy deep into the Missouri wilderness. His wife, Olive, was the resourceful caretaker of the homestead. Her devotion to her home and her family allowed Nathan to live an adventurous lifestyle. 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.


The Boone home and cemeteries will be available for guided tours.
