  • Went on the guided tour over Labor Day weekend. Tour guide Angel was fantastic at explaining the home and history as well as retelling stories of the Boone family. Several reenactment actors were on site as well throughout the town. Everyone was wonderful and the entire family enjoyed the experience.
  • The tour was great, well worth the price. Gift shop has cool items that are reasonably priced as well. 4 stars because they don't always have the village staffed so you can only look into the windows of those buildings sometimes.
