Boone’s tie to Missouri covered more than two decades, including a visit to Fort Osage while on a hunting trip in 1816. Patrons will literally walk in Boone’s footsteps when they visit the reconstructed Fort and Factory trade house. The Boone exhibit is courtesy of the Kentucky Historical Society’s “Museums on the Go” program, and it's the first time that the exhibit has been on display outside of the State of Kentucky. The exhibition is included with $8 adult admission fee; $4 for youth and seniors.
