October 19: Halloween, Spirits From the Past
Life in the early 1800s was filled with superstition and uncertainty. As night descends, walk the lantern-lit paths and explore a pioneer village where doubt lurks in the shadows. Watch as tales and stories are brought to life and learn why townspeople were always cautious—especially at night!
December 6-7, 13-14: Christmas Candlelight Tour
Night has fallen, the stars shine above, and thousands of candles illuminate a world on the edge of the frontier. At the Historic Daniel Boone Home & Heritage Center’s Annual Candlelight Tour, guests step back to the 19th century and witness Christmas as it was celebrated in the past. Learn about different cultures and traditions while enjoying period decorations and hot wassail.
