Lost History: Boone Station, Kentucky

Published October 6th, 2013

On one of these recent trips, I traveled to Boone Station. As one of the pivotal early settlements (Boone's second Kentucky home, 1779-1782; in existence, 1776-1791), I expected something more dignified than what I found. I found decay, collapse, and abandonment. In an odd sort of way, this mirrors the loss of the Boones' claim, but it is a shame to watch such a piece of history whither away in such a fashion.

Despite the decay, I have attempted to document as much as I can, and I am sharing it here in the earnest hope that archeological and preservation efforts will extend beyond mowing the grass periodically.
