Daniel Boone

Origin of the Library's Name

  • Boone County was created in 1820 out of the territory of Howard in the area known as the "Boon’s Lick Country” from a salt spring worked by Daniel Boone’s sons. The Daniel Boone Regional Library was named when the regional library system formed in 1959. The name was suggested by a patron, Mrs. Ruby Hulen of Sturgeon. The library does not have any special archival material pertaining to the Boone family.
