The mission of the Friends of the Daniel Boone Homestead is to interpret the life of Daniel Boone; the experiences of the Maugridge and DeTurk families; and the settlement, development, and culture of the Oley Valley in the eighteenth and early nineteenth century and to provide recreational and educational opportunities to Pennsylvania and its visitors.

The Daniel Boone Homestead is the birthplace of the famed frontiersman, born in 1734. The Boone House, constructed in three stages throughout the eighteenth century, is a 10-room stone structure fully furnished to the period and situated on 579 acres of rolling countryside. The Daniel Boone Homestead is located halfway between Reading and Pottstown, one mile north of Rt. 422 near Baumstown. The Homestead is owned by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission and daily historic operations are run by the Friends of the Daniel Boone Homestead, a local, non-profit organization. If you would like more information or would like to make a donation, please contact the Daniel Boone Homestead at 610-582-4900.
