DANIEL BOONE HOMESTEAD


While visiting Reading, don't miss the chance to visit the Daniel Boone Homestead, just a few minutes drive from the Inn at Reading. An educational adventure into historic Pennsylvania life, this is a perfect activity to plan for a half-day during your vacation.

At the Daniel Boone homestead visitors are invited to tour the 579 acre preserve that features the legendary American frontiersman's birthplace and childhood home.

Born in 1734 to Quaker parents, Boone spent the first 16 years of his life at the Reading homestead. He would later go on to become a famous hunter and pioneer who explored and settled the frontier now known as the U.S. state of Kentucky. Boone became one of America's first folk heroes and his exploits have been the tale and legend of many books, films and TV shows.

At the Daniel Boone Homestead, visitors may request a guided tour of the house, which has been altered during generations of ownership, but still gives valuable insight into the daily life of early settlers. Visitors may also take a barn tour, to learn about early barn structures and 18th century farming. Special events and tours are scheduled throughout the year.

The Daniel Boone Homestead is a state historic site. Hosts ask that visitors allow at least two hours to tour the property, and call ahead to schedule a house tour. Note that none of the structures are heated or cooled, so hosts recommend dressing appropriately.
