Published 9:00 am Monday, April 16, 2018

A pair of three-sided signs now provide a wealth of historical information to those at Fort Boonesboro State Park.

The signs, which were dedicated Saturday, were the result of a year’s worth of work between the park and The Fort Boonesborough Foundation, Society of Booneborough and the Madison County Historical Society.

“(People) can look at the panels and see how Daniel Boone came through Cumberland Gap to come to Boonesborough,” Fort Boonesborough State Park manager Rob Minerich said. “We’ve already seen people come down to the original fort site and spend time at the markers.”
