Daniel Boone Park and Monument
In 1928 the Kanawha Valley Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) had a monument erected to honor Mr. Boone. The monument had been located near Boone's Cave, and was moved at least twice before it found its current home at the entrance to the park. The DAR rededicated the monument in June 2014. The park sits next to Kanawha River and offers a beautiful setting for any activity. The nearby public dock is used for access to Kanawha River, and formerly was the point to board the P.A. Denny sternwheeler.
