New Park Signs

Visitors to the park will begin to notice new signs being installed on the grounds. Signs were purchased in part with funds from the Fort Boonesborough Foundation.

“Of all the foundation’s contributions to the park over the years, these signs will have a really longterm and lasting impression on visitors to the park, “ said Foundation Member Elizabeth Chalfant.

The Fort Boonesborough Foundation is proud to be a sponsor of “A Gathering of Descendants”

Fort Boonesborough is one of Kentucky's most historic places and, although seldom mentioned in popular accounts, women were present from the very beginning. This work includes women whose presence at the fort can be reasonably documented by historical evidence. The time period was limited to the years between 1774, when the fort was established, and 1784, when the threat of Indian attacks had subsided and the fort's stockade walls were taken down.
