About the Event
The Daniel Boone Homestead Associates are excited to celebrate the arrival of fall with the return of the Homestead’s annual Heritage Day event. This living history event features a variety of eighteenth-century demonstrations, trades, and hands-on activities. These include blacksmithing, leatherworking, hearth cooking, sawmill operation, and much more. The event will also feature a limited number of craft and specialty food vendors as well as a pumpkin painting activity for children.
In the Boone House, volunteers will be cooking a hearty meal over the hearth. Visitors can also tour all the first-floor rooms of the Boone House including the spring cellar and learn about the three families who lived there during the 18thand early-19th centuries. Throughout the historic area, visitors can learn about the detailed work of leatherworking and the hot trade of blacksmithing. Visitors will have the unique opportunities to tour the three-room Bertolet Log House and see the Bertolet Sawmill in action. Children and adults will be able to participate in various hands-on activities including quill pen writing and eighteenth-century toys and games.
Admission: Adults $10.00, Seniors (65+) $8.00, Youth (6-17) $5.00. Children 5 and under and DBHA members are free. Please no pets and no smoking. The event is sponsored and run by The Daniel Boone Homestead Associates.
