Summary

Over the course of two field schools held by Lindenwood University, students have unearthed two limestone roads at the Nathan Boone homestead site (23SC2155) in Saint Charles, Missouri. Nathan Boone was the youngest son of Daniel Boone. The Boone family traveled to Missouri in 1799. Limestone, a local building material, was commonly used on the frontier. The two limestone roads at the Nathan Boone site share a close proximity but seem to be meant for separate purposes. Each road has a distinct width and construction style indicating that these are two separate types of roads that served different purposes. These differences and the possible purpose of the roads will be discussed.
