Daniel Boone Homestead

Daniel Boone Homestead

Follow in the footsteps of a legendary frontiersman. The homestead, on 579 acres of rural countryside, includes the Boone House, restored and furnished with an outstanding collection of period Pennsylvania furniture, tools and farm implements. Programs include Charter Day, Independence Day Program, Heritage Day, Halloween at the Homestead, and a Homestead Christmas. Visitor services include guided tours, museum store, trails and acres of unspoiled open land. Operated in partnership with the Friends of Daniel Boone Homestead.

Special Note:

The Pennsylvania Historical & Museum Commission (PHMC) is ending its partnership with the Friends of Daniel Boone Homestead. The PHMC thanks the Friends for their service to the Commission and the Commonwealth.

Moving forward, the PHMC will be taking a more active role in the management of the site, focusing on customer service, visitor experience, inclusion, and access. PHMC expects to place a new staff member on site within the next few months.

While management of the Daniel Boone Homestead is in transition, the visitor center and historic buildings will be closed for the remainder of the season. Maintenance staff will continue to care for the site and the grounds will remain open for pedestrian use from sunrise to sunset.

We look forward to welcoming visitors in 2020.
