Boonesboro (or Boonesborough) is a former settlement located in central Kentucky located along the Kentucky River.  The settlement is named after Daniel Boone who built a fort there in 1775 while working for the Transylvania Company.  With 30 armed men, Daniel Boone blazed the famous Wilderness Road and founded Boonesboro.  Richard Henderson, the chief promoter for the Transylvania Company, arrived a few weeks later with additional settlers.  Later in the same season Boone brought his family and more settlers.  Boone was elected captain of the militia when  Kentucky was made a county of Virginia in 1776.  Boonesboro was eventually abandoned because of repeated attacks by Native Americans.

The fort founded by Daniel Boone has been restored with Fort Boonesborough State Park.  The living history park is located at 4375 Boonesboro Road in Richmond Kentucky.  The park has a reconstructed fort with blockhouses, cabins, period furnishings, craft demonstrations, museum, camping, fishing, boating, swimming, miniature golf, trails, and picnic areas.
