2011 VIDEO TOUR OF DANIEL BOONE'S BURIAL PLACE

Note (2016): It's hard to believe this was 5 years ago now! I live nearby this historic little spot and this is something I recorded one day without any planning or forethought. Maybe I'll make a new video soon, although the cemetery hasn't changed much. As a matter of fact, I'm pretty sure it hasn't changed much since Daniel Boone was laid to rest here. The only big change came in 1845 when a Kentucky delegation opened the grave and took a few artifacts from it which they reburied in Frankfort, Ky. This is the true burial site of Daniel Boone and it probably doesn't look much different today than it did when Daniel himself stood here as he buried Rebecca, his wife of 56 years, who died 7 years before he did.
