  • This was a great experience full of history and very interesting! A must do!! Diffently takes you into the past 
  • Waveband, a test of early Kentucky that you will enjoy seeing and hearing the history of the home and estate. Bring a picnic and enjoy the setting and beauty. 
  • We visited this amazing place in September of 2016 Fantastic tour with a depth of information that you rarely find. Interesting connection to the Daniel Boone family. I would highly recommend this!

  • Neat historic site! I'm an out of town visitor and enjoyed walking the grounds on my lunch break.
  • Great historical experience, with plenty of seasonal activities to keep you coming back.
  • A fairly impressive piece of Kentucky history. The tour was fun as fun as we made it and it was good to wander around the property.
  • We did family pictures here. There are great scenery and so close to town.
  • Went for the outdoor movie series. The staff and the venue were great, although there were some AV issues.
