1. Original Location of Marker
According to the Friends of Boone Trace, the marker is one of 14 markers placed by the Daughters of the American Revolution in 1915 to mark the route of Boone Trace and to commemorate the exploration of Daniel Boone and his fellow trailblazers in 1775. The marker was originally located to the east behind Mt. Carmel Christian Church where the previous Highway 25 was located. When Highway 490 was built, the marker was moved to the front of the church. Remnants of the old highway, and likely the actual Boone Trace, can still be seen behind the church.
