"Soon after, I returned home to my family, with a determination to bring them as soon as possible to live in Kentucky, which I esteemed a second paradise, at the risk of my life and fortune.

Daniel Boone's Cabin,Nicholas County

Daniel Boone's cabin now stands on private property on Highway 68, three miles from the traffic island on Highways 68 and 36. A gravel road close to the historic marker sign leads to the cabin. Visitors are asked to park to the side of that road, in order not to block access.

He or his son Daniel Morgan Boone built this cabin in 1795 on Brushey Creek and lived there until they moved to Missouri in 1799. The site, Boone's last home in Kentucky, is now on Forest Retreat Farm.
