200 Years and Still Standing
The first story was actually built into a hill and housed the kitchen and dining room. Window sills inside this place were a good 2 to 3 ft deep because that was the thickness of the stone walls. They believe Boone helped design the house, and I, for one, can surely believe that. The place even had holes between the windows to shoot out of at one time.
Boone's house wasn't the only attraction there. They also had a village tour of old buildings that were brought in from various locations. I think my favorite would be the church. Can we say gorgeous?! And get this - the preacher's study was a windowed gazebo-like structure outside the church. No getting married in secret back then. ;)
