School Summary - Daniel Boone Homestead Field Trip

I respectfully ask that you not pin pictures of my children to Pinterest. Thank you!
The Boone House
For this year's Smithsonian Museum Day, we decided to visit the Daniel Boone Homestead. We aren't quite up to Daniel Boone in our history studies but of the participating museums, this was the closest that is something that we'll be learning about later this school year.
The weather was gorgeous to walk the grounds and see the various buildings.
After a week in Virginia, the Daniel Boone Homestead was a little less exciting than Colonial Williamsburg but it was an easy trip. If you go, you only need a couple hours to see everything.

We didn't pay for the guided tour so we just used the map from the Visitor's Center to fill us in.
