1. Boone’s Lick Road. Boone's Road Association website entry:
The Boone’s Lick Road, dating to the early 1800s, stretches across present St. Charles, Warren, Montgomery, Callaway, Boone and Howard counties of eastern and central Missouri. Although the road has been largely forgotten in modern times, if St. Louis was the Gateway to the West, then the Boone’s Lick Road was the way to get there.
