Daniel Boone Homestead

On the Trail of History is a series of brief descriptions of PHMC's historic sites and museums.

Visit the actual site where the legendary frontiersman Daniel Boone (1734-1820) was born and raised – and learn how the Keystone State was settled in the eighteenth century. This fascinating historic site in Berks County interprets the life of the Boone family and examines the heritage of the region’s early settlers – among them English Quaker, German, Swiss, Huguenot, and Swedish pioneers – by comparing and contrasting the lifestyles, customs, and traditions of different cultures in Pennsylvania’s Oley Valley.
