Daniel Boone Day

Daniel Boone engravingOn June 7, 1769, frontiersman and explorer Daniel Boone encountered the forests and valleys of present-day Kentucky after spending months trekking across the Appalachian Mountains – an exploration no one else had made. Not only did the discovered area become the state of Kentucky, but Boone’s trail became the  “Wilderness Road,” or the main road to the west, and opened up new land to be explored by the people of young America.
