Boone Trace film highlights crossing in Knox County

A film called "Retracing Boone Trace" was created in Fall 2014 to highlight and depict the crossing of the trace through Knox County.

First blazed in 1775, Boone Trace was the original trail leading the early settlers west. Approximately 500,000 people moved west via the route. The film is a cooperative effort between Union College, the Knox Historical Museum and the Daniel Boone Festival Committee and is approximately 15 minutes in length.
