Fort Boonesborough, I (Kristi) grew up going here every year with school. So fun to take the kids and see nothing has changed! My Old Kentucky Home August 3, 2014 Apparently, John gave money to erect this obelisk back in 1981. Millie enjoying fort life. Perks of going to do history field trip first thing on a Sunday morning... We pretty much had the whole place to ourselves! While we were in the area we swung by my old school... Everything seemed so much smaller than I remembered it to be. We got to visit with the Browns today and go to community group with them... They were amazing hosts, such a blessing to us on the start of our trip!
