Boone Home to celebrate Daniel’s 268th birthday

October 18, 2002

On Saturday, October 26, the Historic Daniel Boone Home will host a “birthday party” to celebrate the 268th anniversary of America’s first and most revered pioneer. The activities will include pioneer games, sing-alongs, craft projects, party favors and a special birthday cake. The party will run from 1 pm to 4 pm.

“Every year we commemorate Daniel’s birthday in some special way,” said Pam Jensen, guest services manager at the Boone Home. “This year, we are having a family birthday party, and we want all of Daniel’s ‘friends and neighbors’ to join us.”

“Daniel also likes birthday presents,” Jensen added with a smile, “especially native perennial plants, iris and daffodil bulbs, and natural materials that can be used in making holiday decorations. We hope our guests will bring Daniel lots of birthday presents.”

In addition to the birthday party, the Boone Home is having a Barn Sale on the same day. The sale will begin at 9 Saturday morning.

“We are cleaning out an important historic barn,” said James Gladwin, Director of the Boone Campus, “and we have come across a number of interesting old things that many people might want – so we decided to have a sale. Everything will be offered at yard sale prices, and we want everything to go!”

Gladwin emphasized that nothing from the Boone Home museum collections is included in this sale.

“These are not Boone or Boone family items we are selling; they are mostly household and building items that were left here by people who lived on the property before the Boone Home was a public history house.”

Gladwin said that furniture, kitchenware, collectibles, building supplies, vintage clothing and textiles, vintage appliances, and all sorts of “curiosities” would be available at the sale.

For additional information on Daniel Boone’s Birthday Party or the Barn Sale, call the Boone Home at (636) 798-2005.
