Check out our Facebook and Instagram pages! We are sharing historical pictures and facts every weekday
on our two social media sites, to keep educating people about Boone County’s history.

We have started planning ways to offer online virtual tours of our History Center, plus other ways to safely connect
with Boone County’s citizens and students.
