My sister loves to be on the go. Constantly. I can always count on her to find any festival, fair, sale, show, or event worth going to within 100 miles. So when she saw an advertisement for the 1840's Fibers and Textiles event at the Historic Daniel Boone Home in Defiance, Missouri, she knew I would be dragging her out to the country to look at fabric and fibers. The Daniel Boone Home and Boonesfield Village comprise a National Historic Site that is now owned by Lindenwood University. Boone, one of the most famous frontiersmen in American history, moved his family from Kentucky to Missouri in 1799. The Boone home is four stories tall with limestone walls that are more than two feet thick (the settlers feared nearby American Indian tribes). Boone House was actually owned by Daniel's youngest son, but Daniel spent most of his time there and eventually died in the home. Gradually, private owners moved the dozen period buildings that comprise Boonesfield Village to the estate to enable visitors to get a more accurate picture of life in the 1800s.
