Points of Interest
To visit the Daniel Boone Monument—including Boone's former gravesite—go right on Boone Monument Rd. at milepost 75.8 to Bluff Rd. Turn left (west) on Bluff Rd. and go about four-tenths of a mile. The Boone monument is located on a hill to your right. Though open to the public, the Boone monument is on private land, so please treat it with respect. From the monument, you can return to the Katy Trail by backtracking.
Offered Spanish land grants, the Boone family moved from Kentucky to what is now Missouri in 1799. Daniel Boone was buried here in 1820; his wife, Rebecca, had died in 1813. Their bodies were removed to Frankfurt, Ky., in 1845, though local folklore suggests Kentucky received the wrong bodies.
Shortly before reaching Marthasville, at milepost 76.2, trail users cross Tuque Creek on a 190-foot-long through-truss bridge. The Tuque Creek bridge is one of eight that the Katy Railroad rebuilt between New Franklin and Machens after giving up its Moberly-Hannibal line in 1923. From then on, the Katy depended entirely on this Missouri River route to reach St. Louis and Chicago.
